    That's the way I've been doing it for many years. Works great.

    This section of double super elevated track will be used on the helix, it will loop around the 3rd level and come back down on the other track. I made jumpers without cutting the wire. I striped the insulation and soldered it mid wire. I probably will just drop two sets of feeders instead of doing it that way though.

    I decided to use WAGO 221s as feeder terminal strips connections to the bus. Nice and compact. Handles 12-24 gauge wire, solid or stranded.

    Wago has jumpers (could just make one too) and mounting brackets for them also.
