Caboose Industries HO & N Scale 117R Operating Ground Throw Rigid .165" Travel with Selectable End Fittings
Standard Ground Throws With Selectable End Fittings include a shim to raise the stand to tie level and five different end fittings for connection to most commercially manufactured turnouts: a hook end for Atlas, blade for Roco, hole for PECO, small round pin for Micro Engineering, and round pin for Shinohara and others. They are available with .165" travel for HO and N in both sprung and rigid configurations.
Caboose Rigid Ground Throws are fully-functioning stands that require the hobbyist to supply a spring link between the slidebar and turnout throwbar. Rigid models are recommended when the ground throw must be mounted some distance from the turnout; normally, ground throw motion is transmitted via a spring wire running through a tube to the turnout mechanism.
