Re: First time with point motors query

Ah cool, thank you. May need to wire it as 2 switches as an interim measure and add the CDU when I motorise some of the other less accessible points.

Converting old locos to DCC?

Apologies if this has been covered before I did have a quick look. I have a decent collection of locos and was perfectly happy with everything.
