Brian, I was talking about the Tillig point motor here.

To quote one of the posts:QUOTE Regarding Value for money:

This unit costs €11.78 or £8.12 (at Lokshop).

A Peco High Performance Turnout Motor (PL10W) cost £5.35; Twin Microswitch (PL15) cost £5.75 - Total: £11.10 (at Antics) / (£8.65 at RoS).

You don't get the slow action though...

So it works out cheaper. It seems well made and looks sturdy. I'll wire it up and test the action shortly.
These prices are for singal units, not volume discount prices which may make some items cheaper.

Yep, Brian, its a bit of a mess, but it seems they are about the same if you want all the bells and whistles. If you want simple switching of points the the Peco is fine. You need to thave a sprung point mechanism though with the Peco switch and you need an unsprung mechanism with the Tillig motor (on Peco points you will need to remove the spring).

Anyone looking for about 25 point switches going cheap...?
