I am looking for the specs on power supply PWR-56 I.E. volts, amps, overload limit etc . thank you..

I could not find the page for info: Here it is :

Hi Carter,
This is on the PWR-56 internet page.
Approximately 14.2 volts, 4 amps, 56 watts.  It is short circuit protected and overload protected.  This is enough power to run up to 15 modern HO scale locos with RailPro sound modules.  Please do not be confused by the often quoted 0.5A for DCC locos.  Our modules are more efficient than many DCC modules so you do not need as big of a power supply.  You can add as many PWR-56 as you would like to a layout to power any size layout.
Please let us know if you have any more questions.
Thank you for contacting Ring Engineering!

Wanted to share for those looking for amp and volts. Fast RailPro.
