LEGO 9V Trains and Speed Regulators

Hello, I was wondering how much trains the 4548 Speed Regulator can controll at once, and how would you set up the Speed Regulator in a track layout? Is it easy as plugging the transformer into a power outlet and putting those gray-brick things (sorry for the bad description) onto the track? Thank you.

    You can generally run 4 motors at once on the same layout. Any more than that and they tend to bog down and run slowly. The more cars you put on one train the slower it runs also. You can put the connecting wires anywhere on the track that is convenient for you just plug in the regulator to the wall and put the track wires on and that's it. The thing about the 9v is that some motors run a little faster or slower than others so one train will catch up with another eventually.
