    It shouldn't be that much of an increase. As for N scale? If you let your trains run 24/7 with all the layouts accessories on. It would be same as a leaving on a 60 bulb for 24/7.

    Now if you are Ham Radio Operator like me. You have some large ampifier. You DO see an increase because of the 1500 watt amps that I use. Plus poweer supplies for the radios.

    Model railroads consumes 110vac. Then reduces the power to low AC or DC power. My Amps uses 220VAC and boosted it up to 7500VAC! I would find some other electrical device that is causing your problem. Or it might just be the electric company raising your rates! :curse:
