Actually I'm going to put in a section of what to avoid... will probably raise some hackles, but if I had a buck for every person who wonders why their LGB starter supply does not run a USAT diesel, or people who cannot get prototype speed from an MRC 6200, I be able to retire today.

I updated the page, still unorganized, but that's how I do stuff...

Greg,

I'm glad you brought up starter set power packs.
The old LGB ones were pretty marginal especially if one used the accessory terminals to power anything.
But in 2011 when LGB went to the separate switch mode supplies and throttle, they introduced a 36 watt/18 VDC switched mode power supply with a matching throttle, part numbers LGB 51090 and 51099 respectively.
The smaller version of the LGB units in the list.
Still not a powerhouse but a lot better than wehat used to come with LGB starter sets.

Question that is still open - what power supply is available for 115 VAC, the LGB 51090 is a 230 VAC unit.
I'll drop Ron Gibson a line to see what he has to say

Knut

Some of the newer LGB starter sets had a wall transformer and that unit was only 14 volts. Corded power supply was more like 20 volts. Speed controller was the same for both.

Dan,

Do you have a model/product number for the 14 volt wall trsnsformer?

Seems to me there is a big disconnect between what LGB ships in "115 volt" countries vs "230 volt" countries. Dealers in Germany were quite pleased when LGB started shipping the upgraded power pack with starter sets.

I do not have the model number but I will keep a look out for one and let you know if I find one.
