    With some/most Rokuhan straight track, the center of the roadbed slides out, and you insert the power connector right there.

    You don't mention track type. But someone has sold you a Rokuhan feeder which slides into the track as shown above.

    You also show wired joiners which connect in place of joiners see my examples on this page
    https://zscalehobo.com/atlas/atlas_2092.html

    Summary
    Rokuhan track if you have straight tracks - plug feeder into straight track slot
    Rokuhan track if no straights (or also for Märklin if no feeder track)- use soldered joiners to connect in case there are no straight tracks with feeder slots. You will have to supply a harness conversion (trim an A008) from the controller to the soldered joiner wires.
    Märklin z track - use an 8590 feeder or the soldered rail joiners.
