Q:  Can the SE8C slow motion turnout controllers operate multiple turnouts from one output?

A:  No. The slow motion connection was originally intended to be used with single slow motion drives for semaphores, part of the overall design of the SE8C signal driver. Since only one semaphore is operated, the circuitry was not designed to handle heavier loads than that single drive.
