    Line-based GM template is a good place to start - I tend to build the track as native geometry, then array shared nested families - but if it's non-linear, (i.e. a curvy track) you'll need to either get up to speed on adaptive components or (and this will get me shot by some) you could always repurpose a baluster template (for the light fixtures) and use a railing (for the track)!

    EDIT But these are for architectural-use, where we don't do all the natty-MEP connector stuff, so I don't know how that will play with your needs.

    Easy, just select the nested families when you're done (having made sure they are hosted on the placement level in the baluster) and copy-paste, switch the nested one off with a visibility parameter. Once independently hosted in the project, the connectors become available for MEP. The railing rig is basically a placement tool with more flexibility than an array.
    Nested connectors could do with some improvement though.
