You can power both from one power supply.

Yes you can power both from one supply, but if you get an overload wher ehte supply shuts down, both tracks will stop. I prefer separate supplies and I have found has great prices on 24 volt supplies.
I set up a friends portable layout with 2 of the 6.5 amp supplies and all his problems went away. Due to 'accidents via children touching the track', a short would occur and shut down both tracks.

Happy Rails,

His friend Jerry Dillon looked up at the hillside and said; There is a big ledge, and the whole damned hill is a total wreck with quartz boulders of ore.
