I've just spent three hours failing to get one pair of point motors to
work. They work fine off the layout, the points work fine without the
motors, but once the motors are on the points they simply will not
move, despite careful measurement and any amount of adjustment.
Part of it is, of course, using Peco motors, which are shit, but I
can't justify paying the huge cost of using better motors. Or at
least I couldn't, if this experience is anything to go by I will be
able to justify gold plated motors with diamond encrusted labels just
on the basis of saving my sanity.
