QUOTE (Robert Stokes @ 26 Oct 2008, 23:51) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>The speed of conrad point motors, like the speed of any of the slow action type, can be controlled by altering the voltage supplied to them. I also found them too fast when given 12 to 16 volts. However, at about 7.5 volts they are quite a bit slower and quieter. I have a plug-in AC to AC transformer which has a control to alter it from 3V to 12V in steps of 1.5V.

That's a good idea. I have a 16 volt bus that I use for points. Perhaps I could set up another lower voltage point bus to use some of the Conrad motors that I now have spare.
