HO & N Ground Throw With Contact



The 220S is no longer available.

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
  • Small round pin for Micro Engineering
  • round pin for SHINPHARA and Fast Tracks
