Hi Tutorlane
There are decoders that will plug in to the Tortoise Point Motor
Some have feedback to the DCC system (more expensive though)
DCC Specialties do some- Here is a guide Click Here
These are quite common in the US and suppliers do combo packs of Tortoise and DCC decoders

the Lenz 150 only needs a simple addition to run the Tortoise type motors (2 diodes like 1N4001 ,cost 6c ea)
and run a separate AC power supply , to the AC input of the LS150
You can also still operate the points with momentary contact push button switches.

Hope this helps
Regards Zmil
