It can't be done, well not unless you have an isolating joint. Otherwise you are shorting rail one to rail two and rail two to rail one so you will immediately go into overload.

Not that difficult to isolate a joint, I did one for the gadget shows attempt at the scalextric speed record at chatsworth. They needed an automatic brake section, so I removed the sticking out pin at each side of the joint (just pull with some pliers) and then I shorted the end section so that all cars would brake when they hit that section.

Do it on a joint that is cheap as it is not so easy to fit the pins back.

Do it anywhere in the loop. Power will be fed from lane 1 up to the joint on one side and from lane 2 up to the other side of the joint. Mind that you only want to take out the links on one lane at the joint that you isloate, the other lane needs to be still connected.
