As far as I can tell, the only quality DC power supply that fits your needs is the MRC Control Master 20. This model has a large available amperage, a good tethered walk around control devise with momentum, and is built to last. I had one that stayed running continuously for over 12 years. About the only way to get these is via E Bay. Most are available used but there are some listed (supposedly) as new. Prices range from $100 to around $150.00. I don't believe these units are still offered new by MRC but I have heard that service on used units is still available.

Subject: [HOn3] DC Power Supply Search
After many years I am getting back into HOn3 and once settled into my new house, I can start on my first layout in over 30 years.
The layout will be a one-man operation, with one train running at a time. I will be doing old-school DC. With over 25 HOn3 locomotives that I'd like to see running at some time or another, adding DCC decoders to all of them is.....well not going to happen.
I have found there is very little in the way of DC quality power supplies available today. Looking through Walther's catalog, MRC seems to be the only one left in business. I need to have tethered walk around capability, which further limits my choices.
Any and all suggestions appreciated,
