Good morning everyone. I'm new to O Gauge and DCS. I just purchased a TIU, Wifi Module, and a AIU for my very small 3'x6' layout. Why so small? I live in a townhouse (for now).
I also just purchased Barry's book which is AMAZING. I love how detailed it is. So my question is, since my layout is so small, do I really need to use external power of my switches? Will it really be that detrimental or can I get away with it? Along with that, I'm using a Z-1000 power pack for the layout which has an accessory port built into it. If I HAVE to use external power, can I just use that port for the power connected to a terminal block?
Thanks in advance. The O Gauge community seems to be a great bunch of people!
