Can I connect multiple HO scale model train power pack controllers together to run multiple engines at once?

Question by Zaner: Can I connect multiple HO scale model train power pack controllers together to run multiple engines at once?

Answer by Old Man Dirt
If they are going to be in a single block and operated as unit, it is better just to buy a bigger power pack. If you want to run them as separate trains, then you need to either wire in blocks for the trains to operate and have separate power packs or go with command controls.

Layout Update #3 Lionel Legacy Norfolk Southern Tank Train, Once around my layout on the main line.

Also being pulled is an MTH NS coal hopper. The layout still has lots of work to be done. If you are wondering, you can hear my little girl Lily in the room. She will be 2 in February. Thanks for watching train friends!

Running 3 G Scale Trains at once part 1

Hi and welcome to SB Rail Lines. Also welcome to the new yahoo group called USA Trains G Scale Registry where there is information documented all the way back to 1987 when USA Trains began as Ro Trains. There are photos of custom runs, hobby shop runs, show car runs and all custom runs on this site. The site is a great reference for the USA Trains G scale collector You can visit the site USA Trains G Scale Registry at this link groups.yahoo.com In this video, I run 3 different G Scale trains at once on my indoor layout which features 300ft of brass track and 3 different mainlines. I have 7 different trains made up and run certain ones during certain seasons. I do have family members who visit and like to watch the trains in operation and I always have all 3 tracks moving with trains at the same time. There are cross overs between each track, but luckly to this day therew has been no acciddents. The majority of the G scale trains that I run are made by USA Trains. Enjoy Shawn
