Herb-for tiny scales such as 1:87, etc...how about using appropriate sized brass rod for the poles, soldering the brackets to them and then the wire...It seems (to me) that then the poles themselves could be used as a "common ground" and in small scales would be a lot stronger than the little sticks. Tapered poles might be a bit tough to do this way, but anything is possible. I seem to remember (marimba?) this being done back in the yore days when guys like Gil Mele and Bill Schopp built things "hell for stout"...

Probably a great reason that I have no overhead is how rowdy we get when operating, things like wires above the track might get torn out due to wild "engineers"...
