Here is my situation. My MTH Fire Station and Gas Station make the red light blink on my ZW-L when activated. The amp draw goes over 10 and eventually the channel on the transformer turns off. I disconnected the lights and operating items 1 by one from the terminal block. I found that removing the Hobby Shop the amps went from 10 to 8 at 14 volts. If I activate either gas/fire station the amps stay at 8.
All functions on the Hobby Shop work perfectly. I can't see the Hobby Shop drawing 2 amps by itself, as normal.
The high amp draw occurs when the shop is just lit. When I activate the trains in the shop there is no perceptible increase in amp draw. The high amp draw happens in what I call the resting state (just lights), which also have the small operating RR signal inside the hobby shop.
Can someone offer a little insight to help point me in the right direction? Thanks.
