HO TRACK WIRING DIAGRAMS
Wiring | National Model Railroad Association
BASIC WIRING Those who have ever wired a tinplate layout recall that they just plugged the track together and the trains ran. That was possible because the trains were powered by alternating current (AC). HO scale trains run on direct current (DC), and that creates the possibility of shorting out the track by improper wiring.

Look through the list of wiring diagram descriptions below to see if you can find the diagram you need to wire your layout. Since the mid-seventies all slot car sets were produced with plug in contollers and transformers, wiring diagrams are not provided for plug in style terminal tracks.

DCC WIRING CLINIC 11 Basic Plain Track Wiring for DCC Track Feeders 20 –24 gauge stranded Track Bus Wires: 10 gauge – 14 gauge, solid conduit wire (14 gauge more than sufficient for 100 feet run in HO.) 3 feet+ OK between feeds, closer on smaller code track. Solder rail joints between feeders and/or at least one feeder each rail length. BOOSTER

SUGGESTION: What Size Wire to Use for Track Feeders? I find 20 AWG solid makes great feeders stripped from thermostat wire cables for HO. It tucks nicely along the outside of the rail. If you attach a wire to every 3' (1m) section of track, you can use wire as small as 24 AWG. Here are my suggestions.
Model Railroad Wiring Tips for DC and DCC Layouts
I tried this circuit at my workbench using a Tech II 1500 DC Powerpack and four diodes wired according to the diagram below. such as a 1-foot drop from a track rail to a bus wire. </p> Go from "model-railroad-wiring" to HO diesel rewiring for all wheel pickup.

How to wire a layout for two-train operation
How to wire a reverse loop. Any track configuration that permits a train to change its direction without simply backing up needs a special electrical circuit to prevent a short. Wiring a reverse loop, wye, or turntable may seem similar to block wiring, but there are
Model Railroad Wiring
Once you know this about model railroad wiring, then you realize that in order for a reversing loop to work, you have to have a section of that reversing loop that is isolated from the rest of the track. The polarity of this isolated section can be reversed as needed by a manual toggle switch, depending of which track you want your engine to travel on.
