The Bachmann DCC guide said that you could program 9 seperate trains and run them at the same time. Did they mean with the 5 amp power booster,or did they mean you could run them with just the power pack.

I am sure that is with the 5 amp power booster.  Take 1/2 asp per locomotive.  9 times 1/2amp =4 1/2 Amps

I believe the Bachmann guide is pointing out that the E-Z Command can address 9 DCC locomotives. So you could have nine on the layout at once, programmed to address 1 though 9, and that controller could be used to control any of them. But there would not be enough power from that controller by itself to have the motors of all those nine active. Boosters become necessary as the number of simultaneously running motors grows.
