I can lay track with the best of them but I have a mental block when it comes to installing point motors, above the baseboard

I find the Peco instructions baffling

Can someone tell me exactly what I need in the way of parts and how to go about the installation

Many thanks

Hello David,

Assuming you intend to fit the motors ABOVE the board.. ie adjacent to the track, you will need some method of disguising /covering the peco motor unit up.. with some sort of scenic addition /or building.

By far the better way, is to mount the motors underneath the board.. I but assume you have eliminated this and concluded you wish to put them on the top.

All the basic information you will need is here : for any of the recommended ways of mounting points.

the Points info is around half way down the page.

Hope this helps

Thanks Busybee

You are a star

And yes: I have eliminated the possibility of mounting below the baseboard (don't ask)
