Unfortunatly, Peco points are incredibly stiff & the overcentre spring far too stiff. The "engineering" is IMHO far too crude.

However, if you spend some time making sure everything is lined up correctly you should be able to get them working OK with the CDU - there is another current thread at the moment concerning point motors, which may help.

A 3amp transformer is not necessary when a CDU is used - 1amp is quite sufficient - the extra power will not "charge" the CDU up any quicker.

AFAIK most of the Peco point motors require 4amps to operate without the use of a CDU.
