This may be a pretty dumb question but will these new points motors work ok with PL13 accesory switch.
QUOTE (ashleyh @ 18 Feb 2008, 09:17) I wonder if these are actually the same units as the ones announced last year by Hornby?
Ok so new to all this motors on points stuff and last week fitted my first one, used a hornby point motor and mounted on top of base board using hut and plate etc, so purchased 2 more this time to put them underneath the baseboard, some four hours later motor not fitted despite numerous attempts!!! It would be good to see a photo showing how they have been mounted and good luck in sorting it out.
Hi BB sometimes I realise why I married my wonderful wife, does a bit of googling bit of reading and then shoes were I have gone wrong!!! Unfortunately if the Points are already fixed in place and you can't get them up again your a bit stuffed. Although I have used both Hornby and the very similar Peco point motors in the past, I do think their mounting methods leave much to be desired.
I solder six different coloured wires to the motors (keeping yo the same code for all of them). The PM1 has the advantage of an integral switch either for frog polarity switching or indicator lights. As suggested using a terminal block located near to the motor itself will aid wiring and any future testing as needed. Both the Hornby R8243 and Peco PL11 surface mounting motors are supplied with pre fitted wires though they aren't overly long, so the terminal block makes an ideal connection place. Neither of these motors can have any switches fitted directly to them to operate indication LEDs or frog polarity on Electrofrog points. Peco PL10 motor can be mounted directly to a Peco points underside and makes a very good method of adding a motor. Seep PM1 or any from the PMx range can be used, though the PM4 is a bit OTT for Peco or Hornby points as it includes a self latching mechanical device that is not normally needed with Hornby or Peco points as these have an over centre spring fitted to the points which holds the switch rail tightly against the stock rail. Gents all your advice is great fully received, update I have surface mounted on and due to damage had to replace one turnout so was able to enlarge the hole and have mounted underneath the base board. I have used terminator blocks and have wired it all into one output socket of a hornby decoder and via Railmaster got them working as a crossover.


I also had to change one of the motors as strangely it would not throw in both directions but only throw in one, must test it again to see if it's broken completley. Decision time now, I still have another crossover a Y set near main station all laid and ballasted, pulse a corner turnout, is this the time to practice soldering as seep motors seem the best. Another question though if using a seep and as it said would wire into a decoder can I leave the switch out, thus will I only have to solder 3 wires? But if you have a Seep PM1 I would pre wire the switch contacts to a six way terminal block as it's far easier to solder wires in place on the work bench than when the motor is upside down under the baseboard later on when perhaps you decide you need the contact for something! If you really dont want the contacts obtain the PM2 version which is normally a little cheaper too.
Hi shumifan50 Welcome to the forum Good tip for someone without the luxury of a layout as you say, to upload a picture here get a phototobucket account click on choose files there and upload you images from your my pictures on the PC once uploaded go to your album on there and click the picture save it and upload here on the site then add to your posting or copy and paste the IMG code on the right of your picture on Photobucket into your posting here. A BRIEF HISTORICAL OVERVIEW OF THIS MODELMeet the winner of the horsepower race: the GE AC6000CW with 6000 hp under the hood - thats more than the Big Boys were able to do. Walthers Proto HO Scale Fairbanks-Morse H10-44 Diesel Locomotive with Sound & DCC, Pennsylvania No. Walthers Proto 2000 HO Scale EMD SD45 Diesel Locomotive with Sound, Denver & Rio Grande Western No. These trucks were so smooth that the SD7 was compared to "riding in a luxury car." With the advent of 1954, EMD made a conservative marketing push against the competition with the announcement of their "Nine Line" series. I am using Code 75 with live frogs and on the scenic part of the layout with peco motors fitted under the baseboard and have wired and fitted PL13 underneath.
Can I get motors with pre soldered wires as seen seep motors only soldering and me don't mix!
It has the wires already attached but does not include a switch of any kind so you'd have to rig up a microswitch if necessary, alongside the motor. Though alternative switching can be employed such as a micro switch fitted onto the opposite side of the point and its lever worked by the points moving tie bar. When he leaves, the trains are packed away until the next time he visits (they live quite far away). Walthers Proto HO Scale Fairbanks-Morse H10-44 Diesel Locomotive with Sound & DCC, Milwaukee No. These DC and DCC-Sound equipped locomotives feature the ALL-NEW Paragon2 sound and control system.
This DCC sound-equipped FA2 with all new tooling includes our Sound Value SoundTraxx diesel sound package with prototypical engine exhaust, air horn, short horn, and bell. I do not really know how these switches work but wondered if they have to be in physical contact with the motor to work? Mount the motor under the board and screw the choc block to the base board then you run your wires between the switch and the choc block without disturbing the point motor or having to solder upside down.


Example picture The PL10E (extended pin) and be fitted directly to the baseboards underside. That is the power for these motors remains on all the time and the point motor when reaching the end of its travel goes into an electrical stall situation and draws a tiny amount of power from the supply feeding them. I have always wanted to set up some points motors on his track, but believed that the track had to be mounted on a board as the motors fitted underneath the board (as it used to be) or inside buildings fixed to the board. EMDs introduction of an A1A freight locomotive led them to design the SD7 from the ground up.
Here you can bend the outer fixing tabs outwards and use two small wood screws and washers to retain the motor or obtain a Peco PL9 mounting plate. The grill assembly protrudes from the side of the hood whereas with the GP7 the grills are fit flush with the hood. The Hornby R8014 motor can be fitted directly onto the point (Peco or Hornby points) in a similar fashion to the PL10. The following describes what I did and must be read with the clear understanding that once mounted, a motor cannot be replaced or removed from the points it is fitted to (this is the downside of how this works). As built, the SD7 very closely resembles the SD9 with the visual spotting features being the boarding steps and a variation of the classification lights. Unfortunately it is not possible to screw the motor down as this would require too thick material under the points, requiring raising the track.The objective was achieved by cutting a piece of stiff and thin celluliod 50mm by 50mm, glueing it to the underside of the points and then glueing the point motor to the celluloid.
The SD7 (for Special Duty) was a massive locomotive at 60 feet 8 inches from coupler to coupler and weighing 360,000 pounds. It was powered by the same reliable 1500HP 567B V-16 two-cycle diesel engine as the GP7 and F7.With a maximum speed range between 55 and 89 miles per hour, depending on the gearing ratio selected, and a tractive force of 90,000 pounds, the SD series was here to stay. With the SD7, EMD introduced the "lightweight" Flexicoil truck which enabled these locomotives to be used on branchlines as well as for road service. The points can still be operated manually, or they can now be controlled by the point motor.
So depending how much time you want to spend setting up the track, you can connect the point motors or not.
The downside is that if the point motor burns out, it will be difficult to replace, but the points could still be used as manual points.I used a Lenz LS150 to control 6 sets of points with Hornby points and Hornby point motors.
Be careful when trying to use Hornby point motors with Peco points, The pins on the Peco points are too thick to fit in the driver arm of the Hornby point motors; they have to be trimmed to fit.
