    Did you test it out on nomal DC operation before hooking it to the accessory decoder? It sounds like a mechanical problem (binds?) more than an electrical one.

    It does not seem to be binding, the motor does not appear to be strong enough to move turnout. I am using Peco track and motors

    Loosen the turnout if you have nailed it or secured it in some way,it may have something binding under the throw arm.Just a suggestion.

    What is the Accessory Power Source to the decoder?

    It would be from the source that you are using for your DCC.
