How much do you need magnet traction on your wood sections?
The standard plastic track rails are attracted quite strongly to traction magnets.
Wood with copper tape / braid gives zero attraction to traction magnets.
Wood with "magnetic" braid is attracted to traction magnets, although usually not quite as strongly as plastic track.
There are other solutions such as magnetic paint on wood, although usually not as strong as "magnetic" braid it does make the traction magnets work where ever you want it on the track. (Unlike normal rails where the attraction disappears when the car gets sideways)
