On the LGB one it was possible to run more by doubling (tying two motors together)and increasing the time. I woud think the same is possible with massoth

the original versions of the massoth switch decoder could drive 3 seporate switch (point) drives. they then enhanced them to handle 4.

if you need 2 point motors to operate simultainiously then you can double up on one set of outputs (as Phill has mentioned).

Quite a few, but as stated already you only have four separately operable connections in the decoder. I have two points connected to several of my Massoth units' connections (i.e. 8 points per switch decoder). No problems at all. I suspect you could go higher as each operation uses about 1 amp of current momentarily, as measured on my layout.

Thanks lads its sorted.

The new point has been doubled up with an existing one and they both perform impeccably.

As the points are virtually "in line" and one forks left and one forks right I should be able to stage manage some heart stopping near misses (provided I press the right paddle!!!!!!!)

Or the left paddle:D:D
