QUOTE (dbclass50 @ 18 Feb 2008, 21:39) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Solenoid type motors (i.e. Peco/Hornby) are fine on AC, although they sometime buzz a little when operating - provided the motor will fit mechanically it will be fine.

However, the Hornby motors should also be OK - what is the actual problem with them ?

I'm building my son's trainset in a large draw underneath his bed, therefore, I'm having to suface mount the points motor. This is causing problems, whilst Hornby supply an extension bar so you can locate the motor out of gauge, it seems to be impossible to get the positioning correct for reliable operation

Any idea's will be most welcome.
