Postwar ZWs are fine, but the units you mention are less power.
Yes, per transformer, but not if working together, I think.
Maybe I don't fully understand transformers, but if a PW ZW (which I have and currently have dedicated to our seasonal Christmas layout) puts out 275W across 4 outputs, isn't it only putting out about 68.75W per output/channel? Or, if I'm only using 2 throttles/outputs of a ZW, am I getting 1/2 of the 275 on each? Even if the latter, that's still only 137.5W per channel, right?
If the former, then a combintation of 2 LWs at 125W each and 2 RWs at 110W each gives me 470W, right? Granted, I need to phase them (done many times) and they take up A LOT more space, but won't 4 single throttle transformers deliver more power than a single ZW?
Not being argumentative, brand new to this DCS thing after years of the "single wire" TMCC and bus wiring
