Hi John

No power supply is included with the Marklin Central Station 60212.
I use a 60052 which I picked up fairly cheaply on Ebay, To get the full potential track voltage it is important to use a 60VA rated transformer.

Hope this helps
Regards

To find a suitable transformer have a look at the Viessmann range - it's well worth getting a purpose made item to ensure getting the best of of an expensive bit of kit.

The safety aspect is worth considering as well - there are not too many people capable of building a safe power supply of that output. (There are a few on this forum though).

thanks AshleyH & dbclass50, for your replies. gaugemaster is doing it for £75 - £80. it has a 3amp output to the track. plus it's a 60va rated.
