Ok, so with rough measurements I'm going to have approximately 85 feet of track on the Christmas display this season. (Don't get mad), I have a transformer to run the train, forget which one it is right now, I'll look when I get home later...

question would be this:

With that much track, I'll need to run separate wiring to a few points in the layout, yes? Whats the best way to attach the wiring to the track...clips? solder? duct tape? lol...
