Hey guys, not been on for a while, as usual life gets in the way.

My new dilemma is this, I have a new Guagemaster uds, an older udf, and 2 T1 transformers. Now the T1's have 2 16vac outputs each and both controllers are dual controllers. Can I wire one controller to both outputs of one transformer or do I need a separate transformer for each controller, 4 in total. I have scoured the Internet and checked the Gaugemaster website for answers. The instructions simply say 1 track per winding.

I asked the question at the last Model rail Scotland to the guys on the Gaugemaster stall, to which the reply was "Uh, I don't know!" I want to use common return and cab control, so obviously I'm wary of shorts. If anyone can help me, I'd be eternally grateful, and if I have to buy 2 new transformers so be it. Cheers in advance ðŸ'

Hey guys, I spoke to a fella at Gaugemaster who assured me it was fine to use both windings on the T1 with one dual controller. So now, I'm building a housing to fit the transformers, controllers and all the switches for points and control to the track. I've taken some snaps to share, I'm now trying out Flickr, but it doesn't seem to be working. When I copy and paste the upload it says it's invalid. Is anyone using Flickr if so can you help?
