Peco 'twist-lock' point motors

Has anyone tried these yet? They look a great idea but I'm waiting to hear of others' experience before taking the plunge.

I encountered them (online) yesterday. Equally interested in other's first impressions.
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

There's a Peco update in the NGS-journal that states "new annoucement, in development"...
I really hope they develop it with an (working) internal switch  :worried:

To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

No in-built switch, it would seem.

Seems to be variants with and without intended...

bother... I don't need "powerful 3A" motors without switch, they allready make such (and my neighbours complain about the wack)
What I was looking for was low Amp, gently acting motors with -dare I say it- a build-in DPDT switch
not happy.....  :(

These were announced a little while ago. Can't remember were (Railway Modeller, I think).

They sound great, and I'm holding off on buying points motors for the now-being-track-laid upper section of my layout so that I can test them. The main selling points seems to be ease of fitment, and given what a total bugger it can sometimes be to fit the PL-10s, I'm all for some ease-of-fitment for a change.
