Greg,
The "Meanwell" was $63 so good memory. I have plenty of room in my "power cabinet" so don't need to stack anything on the device, can also add small fans in the cabinet to keep those temp's down if needed. Interesting that the NCE uses 14 gauge wire so going from that to 10 and 12 gauge shouldn't cause a heat issue.

JJ. I'll be gone the first week in April but the rest of the month is clear except for a luncheon on the 26th. You have the farthest to travel but Dirk and I are pretty open so we need to find out when you and TW are available. By then I should be able to run DCC, DC, battery and live steam.

Been working on getting the DCC systems in place. Got the power supply wired and working and figured out how I'll put things together. Will stack the NCE boxes but not the power power supply so the fan has plenty of room to exhaust the heat. Started to rain so came in to do indoor stuff.

Not trying to change your mind, but I put thick feet on the bottom of the NCE boxes so there was about 1/2 inch of clearance between them and the power supply.

That was adequate for 24 hour a day running for about 6 months, before I took pity on the electrocuted frogs and started turning the system off when not in use.
