I have done this with a pair of DB 150's by using a ordinary 12 volt
(coil) relay driven by the rectified DCC output of the command station with
the relay contact switching the power to the booster. Relay uses 60mA or so
of DCC command station output but this is negligible for an 8 amp capacity.
This arrangement needs no special timing, when the command station is fully
"up" it activates the booster.
Need more details?

I need to delay the turn on of power to a Digitrax booster until the the
Loconet signal is "GOOD". My command station, DCS200, and booster, DCS200
set to booster mode, are both fed from the same power source. I want to
delay the power to the booster for a few seconds while the command station
starts up. The switching device needs to handle 18 VAC at up to 8 amps.

so after power is applied to other related and connected components.common
voltages, like 12vdc or 120 vac, would be acceptable.
