Re: power for accessories, IMHO


Unless they require connection to DCC, wire accessories to a separate buss(es) and power supplies.

Keep in mind accessories will consume power meant to run trains when they are connected to the track buss.

Also any problem in an accessory (ie short) will also affect your trains. And probably harder to find.

I am converting my layout to DCC and am wondering is it better to power accessories, switches the bus line.... or should I use a separate power box I have left from my dc layout?
