OK. I’ll give it a shot.
question: Does using the B or C plug on the ZW eliminate the use of that for anything else?
i do have the 1032 to work with and did all my speed testing on that. With two mainlines and a trolley I assumed I needed three sources of power, saving ZW B & C for accessories. It’s not clear to me how to run accessory power from the 1032.
I’msure I’ll have questions once I get started. First steps: order the parts and finish laying track!
P.s. I do have other transformers which could be added to the mix - little square black ones and a newer 40 volt train master which came with Thomas The Train. I planned on saving that for Christmas , although I’ll probably have to pick up something that will run two trains under the tree (this year I used my ZW).
