***Yes, they should work. Like many things built with sloppy tolerances however ...sometimes they simply don't which is frustrating. This is largely due to internal friction and loose tolerances combining to make the throw "only just" happen... this is contributed to by the fact that the switch added to the point motor means a lot of friction unless the power supply is really adequate this sort of thing is always likely.

Try lubricating both the point motor and the switch with a little plain old vaseline (not oil!). It may just free things very slightly, perhaps enough to give them that extra wee bit of throw.
