As I am working on my Dad's layout in the train house, I got to thinking about his using a wired remote similar to the Dual Power 027 power pack I read about on other posts. I realize there are some problems with it and the newer model is suggested. Dad will be running conventional postwar Marx and Lionel with the usual Marx remote switches and various accessories. Since he needs a bit more power, I was thinking about getting him a transformer for track control that would enable him to operate it without being stuck in front of a transformer.
Thanks in advance,
