Old train 12v Remote Controlled Points motor testing
Does anyone happen to know how to test these 12 volt point(switch) motors (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=70026)
without a 12v power transformer?
I tried to test with a 4.5v volt box as I have done the same to test 12 v motors just to see if they run (and it works, just slowly), but it does not seem to work with the 12 volt points switch motor. Is this just a matter of not enough voltage (the 4.5v is just not enough) and I need the 12 volts to get them to kick over? Is there an easy way to test these without the 12v transformer?
Just wondering if I am not generating enough current to move them or if all these switch boxes I happen to have do not work (which would be a bit weird that all 8 switch motors I have do not work, or sad if I was testing these correctly but they did not move)
