I am a newbie using a Bachmann DCC Command Control Center I received last Christmas. I would like to set up 4 to 6 remote turnouts independent from the DCC Command Control Center.  I saw on youtube where multiple remote turnouts can be connected to each other which creates a panel of switches. This is what I would like to accomplish. I did see this setup using a Bachman power pack 44212.
 
Question: Can I use the 44212 power pack work on the same setup with my DCC Command Control Center?  I donít want to break or short anything out. Must I use DCC turnouts only or can I combine remote turnouts on the same setup.

If yes, where can I get one? If I have this all wrong please point me in the right direction gently. I am just starting to learn.

Thanks.

You can use the 44212 power pack for your DC turnouts if you can find one because they have been discontinued.
I believe Bachmann's blue 44220 has replaced the 44212. If you shop around, you can find deals.

You can use it in conjunction with your DCC system that you use to power your trains. You just don't want to use it for track power if you're using DCC for the trains.  
Any DC power pack with accessory terminals will work for the DC turnouts.
Bachmann also makes an accessory power supply that you could use for your turnouts - Multi-Accessory Power Supply, 16V DC BAC44219

The Circuitron Snapper is the safe way to fire multiple twin coil turnouts. I made my own many years ago. Connect between the AC terminals and the switches.

Multi-Accessory Power Supply, 16V DC BAC44219. No store seems to have this product. All say backordered april-july. Does anyone know of a place that has them?

Or, is there an alternative to this product?

Thanks in advance.

I see what you mean about everywhere being out of them.
There are a couple of Bachmann power packs on EBAy that I saw that have the accessory terminals.
44604A (I think those came with the Thomas set).
