Renowned for its stable of large, high-amp direct-current (DC) power supplies, Bridgewerks deviates from the norm to introduce a small, yet sleek, power controller intended for modest sized railroads. The all-new Morrison Controller is a 3A power pack specifically made in the U.S.A. to push 0 to 22V of DC power through the rails of temporary displays and compact, large scale railroads (indoors or outdoors). The Morrison is housed in a 9″ x 4″ x 5″ sturdy, matte-black metal case, weighing 3 pounds, 6 ounces. The front of the case is vented, plus a small fan helps draw cool air through the back end when the unit is turned on.

A separate 6′ grounded power cord (110-120V input) and a banana plug connector for track wiring are included. You can also insert track wiring into holes located along the top of each output post.

When tested on our small holiday (under-tree) display, The Morrison’s T-bar throttle moved smoothly through the entire range, and the manual limiter was easy to position using a single thumbscrew. The unit’s three-position toggle switches (Momentum and Direction) clicked in with minimal pressure applied. Also, the LEDs provided quick indication to the disposition of the unit and power output, which proved helpful in low-light.

For two full days of display layout operation, followed by additional bench-testing of a twin-motor, smoke and sound-equipped diesel, the Morrison performed flawlessly. Plenty of good things, plus practical features, arrive in this small powerhouse.
