QUOTE (Doug @ 16 Aug 2007, 16:46) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I have looked at the Tortoise motors. I found them a little expensive. Especially if you add the Rabbit DCC controller.

The Tillig slow action motors are cheaper and do the same thing. And they don't hum.

Look here and here (on my blog)

I've promised a member here already to do a photo-review of the installation of these Tillig motors. I'll do it in the next week or two.
I've also been trying a combination of point motors with various point decoders and am coming to the conclusion that Tortoise are more hassle than they are worth. I will also be instaling Tillig point motors in the next week or so and they do seem to be easier than the Tortoise to install and aren't as big and bulky.

There is none of the associated problems of finding the correct diodes and installing them.
