I did not see such an item on their website,??...only thisCaboose Industries makes a choke-cable like linkage so you can put their ground throws off the layout itself. I have seen them demoed at Train Fest but have never purchased them.
I definitely did NOT want something like this hanging below the plywood deck,...of either my staging deck nor the main decks above.
I believe that's what I was referring to. I forget how long it is -I did not see such an item on their website,??...only this
Wonder if someone has the illustrations of those Humpyard kits??That system from Sullivan is quite similar to the Humpyard kits. I ran my choke cables inder the layout and brought the end up at that tie that the throw rod was located and carefully bent the end to a hole in the end of the throw. Has been working for over 30 years. The web site is down from Humpyard Purveyance so I am guessing that he imay be out of business. I would love to get my hands on some more of his kits.
I'm having trouble picturing this... have you posted pictures of this before?I use 1/2" square wooden dowels that you can buy for pennies at HD, and I use their paint sticks as actuator arms, cut to size. The idea is this:
Screw a mounting block, usually a chunk of 1X4 or 2X4, up to the nether side of the surface beside the 1/2" hole you pre-drilled under the throwbar.
Insert a sharpened brad into the top edge of a paint stirrer so that it projects up to the hole in the middle of the throwbar.
Screw the paint stick to the side of the block in such a way that the brad is inserted nicely into the throwbar's hole.
The dowel now can be screwed to a hole lower on the stir stick, and its far end protrudes through the fascia. When you push or pull the dowel, the mechanism acts as a lever and moves the throwbar. I have 5 such arrangements on my latest layout which is still in the scenicking stage.
