After this weeks debacle with my ZW and a derailment with a resulting short circuit, I have been reading up on circuit protection for older postwar transformers. I mostly run conventional locos, so I would like to stay with a postwar transformer (plus I have a KW sitting around)!
I was reading up on the psx-1 circuit breaker. Seems like most people are using them in conjunction with a DCC application. Can this be used without DCC or any other fancy electronics? I was hoping to wire in a circuit breaker between the transformer and the track to help prevent another blowout.
