Hi rawhidejohnson
I'll just try and answer the "don't seem to get power to all the track" question and leave others to answer the rest of your questions.

The first place to look is the joints between the track pieces, the metal parts that connect the power often get bent or tarnished so they don't work properly.
There are several possible solutions from crimping up the duff connections so they work properly through to putting copper tape on top of the pick up rails.
There's a recent thread about this

There's practical advice which should help you fix the problem (and also theoretical discussions if that interests you.)
