Ground Throws - N Scale
by, January 25th, 2010 at 08:55 PM (10919 Views)
I purchased a Caboose Industries sprung ground throw with contacts as well as a NJ International Switch Stand.
The Caboose ground throw needs to be assembled. Once installed they operate the turnout just great. Only problem is they are huge to scale.
The NJ International switch stand comes assembled. Installation requires making your own linkage. When operating with an Atlas code 55 switch, the targets do not move a full 90 degrees. There is a arm which can be used to throw the switch, but it's rather small and probably easier to throw the switch with a motor and use the switch stand as an indicator. The benefit is that these switch stands are pretty close to scale and look great.
