I have a PM-1 that I wish to power using a Z-1000. A couple of questions.
1. Will the Z1k and PM-1 play well together? Do they sell adapters to just attach the Z1k brick directly to the PM-1 or do I need to use the Z-troller and attach the red/black wires. Would be nice to bypass the ztroller if possible just for the sake of a cleaner install.
2. My above answer may change the following question if there is a different work around. But for now, does anyone have a the cord to connect the PM to a traditional tranformer (Lionel 6-12893) that that'd like to part with? By the time I pay shipping it's $30 for a simple cable. Please let me know if there is a better option.
3. Can I make my own adapter using this if necessary? I don't have the crimp tool but with needle nose and solder I'm confident it would work assuming this is the right size. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-2...349624.m46890.l49292
I'm taking my first step into remote conventional operation. I recently hooked up one loop with a PM-1 powered by a lionel 135 brick and it works great. I have a second PM-1 that I'd like to attach to my second loop which is what this thread is about.
Thanks - Rick
