If you want easy and reliable then just put an oval loop of Kato Unitrack on a piece of plywood, A Kato DC throttle, and one of their train sets wit a matching DC loco. That setup will run reliably for a very long time with no extra fiddling involved.  You can even add some of the Woodland Scenic pre-built structures.

The older I get, the more inviting this option sound !

I call this "But first syndrome."

As in, I need to spike down that rail. But first I have to go upstairs to get the pliers. Once upstairs, I see the vacuum cleaner and decide I need to vacuum the shop. But the extension cord is broken, so I have to fix it. So I break out the soldering iron. Once  I vacuum the shop and I head back downstairs without the pliers.

Repeat......
