The Peco PL-10 point motor is not the ideal candidate for DCC operation due to its high current draw. The Peco PL-10W low-current point motor is recommended for use with DCC accessory decoders. To test the Peco point motor under DCC I converted one end of a fiddle yard from normal to DCC operation. The ESU SwitchPilot decoder has a special mode to cope with the large current draw of Peco point motors, which is just as well because when I initially connected it up, using the default settings and taking power from the DCC bus, it failed to throw any of the points that were connected.

Thanks guys But could you answer that one remaining question I have on the subject - can I wire up another power bus (of sorts) for the point motors and link them all together (only for feed and return). Neil - I initially considered controlling the points via DCC, but the price of decoders put me off (especially as I'll need 34!).

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. If you are buying new motors you should buy these rather than the standard version and if you are having problems with an existing motor it is well worth replacing it with the low-current version as it does make a big difference when operated by a DCC decoder. It is easily recognised as it has green insulation around the coils (left), rather than the black of the standard motor (right). Swapping this point motor for one of Peco’s PL-10W low-current point motors got all the points working. Is there a tutorial somewhere on this forum, perhaps even a picture chart detailing the procedure (for want of a better word)?
I installed a point motor there for the first time and it worked perfectly, the hardest part being the actual mounting of the point under the baseboard which was as fiddly as anything I can imagine. You said that you had just finished the DCC power bus, but you seem to be talking about doing the point control completely separate from that. So I bought a Gaugemaster CDU along with my 34 point motors, 34 toggle switches and a stack of wires. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Previously it was operated from a 16V AC transformer through a probe and stud control panel.

The motor eliminates the need for cutting or drilling holes in the baseboard and comes with colour coded wires already attached.
You could do the point control through DCC accessory decoders, which would save a lot of wiring.
I have absolutely no issue wiring up the point motors for analogue control (not now anyway), and I'm actually a bit excited about making a nice control panel. Aside from -Am I right in assuming I should construct another bus around the underneath of the layout for common feed and return of the point motors? Typically these attach to the DCC bus, and you can control the points through your DCC controller. Five are mounted directly underneath their point, the sixth is fitted above the baseboard using a Peco PL-12 adaptor base (with the over-centre spring removed). Obviously I'll keep the individual switch parts of each motor separate and run those all individually to the control panel. The down side of this is that setting up a mimic panel-type control panel is not straightforward.
