wall pack plus transformer
« on: December 12, 2017, 04:20:29 pm »
If I use my approximately 50 watt lionchief set wall pack and my CW80 80 watt transformer hooked up to two terminal tracks on my 60 foot mainline loop will I have 130 watts of useable power to the track?  Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Chuck

Do NOT hook the 2 transformers up that way. The wattage will not add the way you think, and you will have no control over the trains.

If you need more power, get a bigger wattage transformer.
