Hello Sigma,

Having manual points should have no effect on rollingstock, but would drive me mad after a while, since this is your first layout it's always good to gain experience and one way of doing that is to install perhaps just one point with a motor so that you develop 'know-how' for the hypothetical gigantic second layout! I would recommend point motors anyway since there are only four points and it's nice to be able to control everything from one spot...

Also were you to install motors later then it would require reballasting/adjustment/turning the layout upside down etc. which would be more hassle than installing them first.
