Re: new dcc HO layout
Vollrath, Don <don.vollrath@...>
If you purchased the PowerHouse-Pro 5 amp radio starter system it does contain a booster and comes with a radio equipped ProCab-R, but does need an external transformer/power supply. Did you also purchase the recommended P515 supply? See https://ncedcc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200943035-PH-Pro-5-amp-Radio-Starter-System .

The Pro Cab R has no booster (I have 3 of them), when you got it did it come with a separate black box Power Pro (has 5 amp booster) or Power House (no booster)? If neither you have probably have no command station.
Ed thanks for your input. Yes the pro cab r model has 5amps of power. I now understand the wiring between the pro cab r and pb5 booster. They are to be kept separate into two separate booster sections. Each booster section will have 3 power sections assigned to them. Yes I'm learning it is an overkill but I would rather have too much than not enough amps to have the option of running as many locos, lights, accessory decoders as possible on my little layout. I appreciate all your input it has helped immensely.
