I installed a 12 Amp bridge rectifier to an MTH Z-4000 transformer recently.
Of course, I still need to find a heatsink for the BR, and permanently mount power supply and accessories.
So far, this has powered my trains nicely. But then, I also haven't let things run for any great length of time.
Tried an MRC Teck 2 1400, and my USAT NW-2 tripped the circuit breaker after about 3 minutes!
My USAT PA-1 was never checked, and my Aristo Craft GP40's tripped the MRC breaker even faster than the NW-2!
What I've got works good for me. I'm hoping it'll work just as good, once I start making the move to R/C.
