Rather than adding a second transformer, you may want to consider investing in a good transformer with a high amperage output (at least 10 amps) to power both lanes. Also, because the Carrera pick-up rails are stainless steel, the connection between the track sections is critical.

But adding a second transformer is no problem. Here's a schematic diagram:-



(1) - (Negative) Power for Lane B from transformer
(2) Black (Track) {Black Wire lead from controller} - Lane B
(3) Red (Brake) {Red Wire lead from controller} - Lane B
(4) White (Power) {White Wire lead from controller} - Lane B
(5) + (Positive) Power for Lane B from transformer
(6) - (Negative) Power for Lane A from transformer
(7) Black (Track) {Black Wire lead from controller} - Lane A
(8) Red (Brake) {Red Wire lead from controller} - Lane A
(9) White (Power) {White Wire lead from controller} - Lane A
(10) + (Positive) Power for Lane A from Transformer or Power Supply

Professor Motor makes a useful wiring loom for a single transformer:-



Kind regards
