Power issues- Polar Express train layout
« on: November 09, 2018, 03:14:25 pm »
I recently added three accessories to my nephew's Polar Express train and they are obviously using too much power.  The train stops at the Gateman and then doesn't start again. Do I buy a Fastrack Power lock and plug it into the wall to add power?

Get a transformer cw80 or better and wire the accessories to the transformer direct.
