Default Wire up PM1s in series?


I'm plodding on well with the old point motors, but have a question.

I have 3 or 4 instances on the layout where it's sensible for 1 switch to throw 2 points. I was advised to wire my Peco PL-10s in series and that seems straightforward as they have 2 switch inputs and 2 common returns.

I was hoping to do the same with some Gaugemaster PM-1s I have and also a PL-11 I have for where I can't fit in a motor.

But both the PM-1 and PL-11 only have 1 return output so I can't see how I'd wire 2 up in series.

Am I missing something? I'm only a beginner at all this electrical stuff.
