Hi Mark,
Speaking from experience (a bad one, I might add!
), I would stay away from soldering the track joints. A buddy of mine tried that and ended up with all types of electrical shorts in the layout. He eventually trashed the whole thing and had to buy all new track!

I have Classic track (about 130 feet long) and I use the Scaley standard power taps every 8-10 feet. The molded plastic power taps make it real easy to snap in and out of the track pieces. Also, I don't have any problems with the actual track connections themselves, just make sure the little plastic "tabs" under the rails are not bent downwards.

Of course, I like to change my layout, so a fully permanent set-up doesn't really work for me.

Good luck with whatever way you go.
