    I'm running a G scale train and i would like to know how to provide the track with more power. I already have 2 transformers but they overload or can't provide enough power.

    If u are getting rid of G scale track i will buy it.

    Your problem is low amperes. Is there a short somewhere in the layout? This doesn't have to be a short that you can see. Have you tried a different locomotive? Somewhere you are not getting enough amps. If you are using 2 transformers, that should be more than enough power to a loco. My suggestion is use an Ohm Meter across the 2 tracks and see if there is any shorts. Make sure the loco is off the tracks. The reading should be infinity. If you get any type of reading, you have a short. I almost forgot. [​IMG] Disconnect the transformers too!
