Caboose Industries ground throws are suitable for both HO and N scale with a slide bar travel of 0.165". A SPDT contact is included that can be used to power a turnout frog, a signalling system, or a relay coil.
Caboose Industries ground throws offer a number of advantages including:
- Molded of strong, self-lubricating black delrin
- External cam provides maximum life and travel
- Cam design provides lock on both ends of the throw from 10° above horizontal to the extreme down position
- Direct connection to the turnout through a pin on the slide bar
- Detent to assist in holding the handle horizontal
The throws are internally sprung with stainless steel springs that take up the over-travel and maintains tension to hold the movable points against the stock rails of the turnout.
A shim is provided to raise the stand to tie level and five different end fittings to connect to most turnout are included, including:
- a hook end for ATLAS
- blade for ROCO
- hole for PECO
