I remember him......another one that seems to have disappeared.

Jim.....look at this page. https://www.walthers.com/caboose-industries

I don't know how you get the N ones to work with that little of drawbar movement. Do you relocate the attachment point? I know I tried using HO ones on N turnouts when I was playing around with the HOn30 scene......never could get them to work and had to swap for proper N scale ones.

If the drawbar travel is too little, I don't see how they could successfully throw the points. But then again....what do I know?



Sid

sid,

is you want to adjust the travel in the points, it is a simple surgery to replace the throwbars with a strip of pc board, and solder the points to this. you can adjust the points to suit the switchstand, rather than trying to adjust the switchstand to the points.

I use Caboose Industries N scale ground throws on all my HO layouts and they work fine.  I use Peco and Micro Engineering turnouts along with a smattering of Shinoharas and have not had any problems.  They look substantially better than the HO ones too.
