Wiring Advice Needed

Flex track has a tendency for the rail to creep, some more than others. Filling the gap will insure that it stays a gap.

Just asking, if you use a thin Dremel disk do you necessarily need to fill the gap?

Cut (using Dremel disk or jewelers saw)  through the rail(s) at the desired location, fill the new gap with a bit of styrene glued in (I use epoxy, others use ACC), file smooth the rail head if the styrene protrudes, then paint the rail.  Optionally, use some scenic element to mark where the gap is, because if you do this carefully, it'll be hard to find...

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to add an isolated section to existing track without having to rip it up and put in insulated rail joiners?  I made a big mistake and forgot to put them in at the end of one power district.

Thanks - Alan
