Just a quick thank you to those that helped!  :NGF:

I’ll cut the card (sand paper) down to fit when the scenics begin. It’s a huge hole in my tiny micro layout!  :o

Looking good.  By the way, if you buy the  standard Peco motor PL10 (not PL10-E) then the rod will be the correct length to locate in the tie-bar if you're attaching directly to the point, without sticking up too much and requiring trimming.

When you come to trim the rod,  DON'T use a cutting disk (you'll melt the tie-bar) and DON'T use your best track cutters as you'll damage them. You'll need some decent strong cutters. To be honest if you are having to trim the rod it's best to offer up the motor, mark the rod and remove again while you cut it - but a bit late now you've bent the tabs!
