I bought a stack of fastrack (O-gauge) and a train for my son for Christmas. The track was too big to support the 80 watt transformer I got from LIonel, the train just dies at the far ends of the track. So I bought another 80 watt transformer. I watched a Youtube video on how to get them in "phase" by wiring them together via the black wire, but I have no idea how to actually take these 2 transformers and get them to power our track. The train runs great when it is close to transformer #1, and I know just the spot I'd like to place transformer #2, but how do I do this without risking the trains? I read posts about people buying a different transformer like a 100watt one, but since I already bought 2 CW-80's I'd prefer to use them if possible so I don't have to go spend more. I'm just not sure how to get it to work.
I'm doing my best to read through forums and try to educate myself but it gets hard to understand because I'm very new to all this. Just need a few good succinct steps and I'll go get the equipment to get it done! Thanks for any help, and merry Christmas!
