The old Peco turnout motors with twin coils, when attached to Peco turnouts, had to be excavated.  They were directly attached to the bottom of the turnouts.  And the rod to extend the motor into a left/right switch had a very high rate of failure.

So what exactly do you find so objectionable on those twin coil Peco motors, other than their set installation arrangements, and the fact that they are old tech twin coils ?
