It will allow you to plug it in, but it will not run trains. The Powercab unit is the brains of the system, and must be plugged in at all times to run your layout. Without the Powercab, all you have is a lot of fancy electronics. Since you already have a Procab, you can move that around your layout as needed (provided you have a connection panel there), letting you operate "remotely".Hello,
I recently got an NCE Procab, but it didn't come with anything but the handheld. I'd like to use it on my layout without buying a Powercab so I think I may have found a solution.
1. NCE Powercab connection panel
2. NCE Powercab connection panel power supply
3. Track power connector from the connection panel
If I plug the Procab into all of this, will it work?
