In the future I will be moving into an apartment where I'll finally be able to build a layout.
Thinking ahead toward the purchase of a transformer to run the layout.
What are the pros/cons of the 2 different transformers mentioned in the Subject of this post?
I will have a choice of 2 different rooms to decide which one will be the train room (obviously the bigger would be nice, but not sure until I actually move in). One is 12 x 12; the other is 12x14.75.
I already have two CW-80 (80 watt; 6-14198) that I'm thinking about using to power switches and accessories. I also have a 1.8 amp (36-watt; 6-32923) transformer that I think I could also use for accessories and switches.
I have a few Menards buildings and some Lionel lighted accessories. Not sure how many switches I'll have.
Added info: I already have both the Lionel LEGACY system and the MTH DCS. While I have FasTrack and Lionel switches, I prefer the MTH DCS system.
