For several years, a postwar ZW has powered my 150 sq ft layout that uses both Legacy and DCS control. The layout is split between 2 electrical blocks. Power flows from the AU and DU terminals on the ZW through Lionel Power Adapter Cables (6-12893) to Lionel TMCC Cable Sets (6-14194) and finally to the 2 fixed voltage inputs on my MTH TIU. I am getting tired of replacing the fuses in the Lionel Power Adapter Cables every time I have a derailment or other electrical short on the layout!

Can I simply replace the ZW and Power Adapter Cables with a pair of new Lionel 180w Powerhouses (6-85226)? Am I correct in assuming that the powerhouses provide fine circuit breaker protection and that the molex connectors on the powerhouses will plug right into my TMCC cable sets?

Thank you for your thoughts!
