I've run PC PS's for quite some time now, no problems at all detected.

A problem is that they selldom actually give the stated 12V, but a silly way seem to work... (No, I wont tell, because it's not a way to do it that is "safe").

Anyhow, get a few not to old PS's and use the one giving the highest voltage.
And at 5A it's plenty of amperage to use.

Personally I'm going to abondon this set-up that I've used for some five years by now.
In favour of a power supply that will give each lane the same net effect available. Yes, a set amount of volts and a set amount of amperé.
What I hope to gain from this is an end to endless trouble with getting engines different profile to work together in an aimable and competetive way.
And a PS my fianchée built during classes seem to have the needed set-up...


More to come, for sure, on this...

Indeed, but when running HO sliders there was no big deal here.
Trying to get NC's, Mab-S, V12's etc to work together is quite another thing.

And when I found a way to cut both volt and amperé the rest was simple...

Variable ouput voltage isn't my concern, what concerns me is to get a a set amount of effect available to each lane. Ie 12v 0.7A, for example, as a max outage. Thereby making engines "the same".

And a neat trick EM, I'll try that too.
