Caboose Industries HO & N Scale 5218S Operating Ground Throw Sprung .165" Travel w/ Selectable End
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 Sprung Ground Throws feature two internal stainless steel springs to take up the overtravel and maintain tension upon switchpoints against the turnout stock rail. The springs are preloaded to a 6-ounce force, assisting in good electrical contact between points and stock rail and aiding in turnout installation.
