    From what I know the train power pack has shorting safety- so it will sense the wire is a short-out, and shut off power in 2 minutes of use.

    Instead than that transformer, You can use a servo tester, and a brushed speed controller for an rc car, both of these can be found on hobbyking for probably around $10

    Firstly lets get some facts right! Ray McIntire and the Dow Company did not invent polystyrene (a.k.a. styrofoam). Polystyrene was invented 98 years earlier, in 1839 by a German named Eduard Simon, but Eduard didn't realize its use and potential. It took another German company, famously known as BASF, 91 years to realize it's commercial use, and in 1930 BASF was manufacturing polystyrene for the commercial market.
    The Dow company merely introduced this already discovered product to the US market 7 years later in 1937`.
    Secondly, on the wire cutting mechanism…. awesome project!!!
