LIONEL TPC 400

  • What are the advantages for or against using the ZW TrainMaster Controller with (4) 180w powerhouse transformers verses the Lionel TPC 400 if you are strictly in TMCC?

  • TPC 400 puts 400 watts in a single power block. Unless you need a lot of power like a club layout that can accomodate very long illuminated passenger cars and multimotored engines, go with the TPC-300 or the ZW. ZW will handle a total of 720 watts but only 180 per block. Advantages of a TPC are that they also can be configured with ENG id's so you can use more TR assignments for lashup's. If you are running straight TMCC, you can assign all four internal PM's the same ID (same is true for a bank of TPC's).
