It's actually a piece of MDf which moves over the baseboard top (also MDF). It pivots on a small nut and bolt. I don't know the size off-hand but will measure it up if it would help. It's just wide enough for two tracks set at the minimum clearance distance and each holds a loco and three pieces of (4 wheeled) rolling stock. A shelf above helps with storing stock. As there isn't the space to mount a bolt to lock the sector plate in the conventional horizontal position, the 'bolt' is vertical and passes through the sector plate and the baseboard to lock it in position. Each of the holes is lined with brass tube wired to the track to provide electrical connection - the photos will make it all clearer.
