Are you talking more than one on the same track? or couple of different lines? How much track are you talking?
I personally run battery power with each engine/battery car having its own control, but I have a large loop to run 3 trains on the same line. As long as we are all keeping our eyes OPEN...

Is it REAL? or Just 1:29 scale?

Sarg,

Have you looked at DCC? There are several systems that have really nice features for LS.

BTW you can use the same system inside and outside. I have a system (ZIMO) which does double duty for HOm and LS, the voltage can be adjusted from 12 to 24V and the basic unit provides 8A.

Today the big question is not finding a unit but choosing which of many possibilities to use.[:0][:0]
