The schematic that I posted shows the markings on the diodes and indeed they must all be pointed the same way. Which way the diodes needed to be pointed would depend on how your track was wired. As Al pointed out if they don't work in one direction just turn them around.
I started writing an article on power supplies yesterday, that will probably get posted in a week or so.

Thank you for the detailed replies. I ordered the voltage regulator that jmacartney referenced
It will be a little while before my layout build gets to the point of being drivable.
