Using Bachman power packs for layout lighting.
Author: Floridarailfan

Does anyone have experience running the accessory wires  from the power pack to a bus bar?  I currently have one power pack for my power turnouts and another to power the light in a single building.  If I can light multiple buildings with one power pack, that would be ideal.

check the output amps on the power pack.  I power an entire city of mostly LED/s from one pack  In other more remote areas of the layout I use wall warts obtained from thrift stores for $1 each.  I try and get 9-11 volt models so I don't burn out my incandescent building lamps early.

Just spend the 10-15$ and buy a proper power supply.
