As usual Model Train Stuff packed and shipped this item for a reasonable price. It is a good old school transformer that works well with all brands of AC O gauge trains. The only thing questionable about it is its overload protection, which seems slow to react. If I were using it with trains with expensive electronics, I would add an additional fuse or circuit breaker. It is fine with my Lionel and Williams stuff. It operates MTH Proto sound 1 locos flawlessly as well. It is a good buy and a solid transformer.

Although I have a few dozen 80 watt transformers that came with various "starter sets", I bought this unit after using it several times at M.B Klein's excellent showroom layout. The buttons give a solid feel when activated, and I especially like the ON/OFF SWITCH. There is more than enough power for running several Atlas Trolleys, all at the same time,or any small to medium train set. Everything that Atlas makes is good stuff!!!
