      Hello fellow Zeds & Nn3 fans,

      Our Archimedean Ground Throw is designed with
      a throw wheel that also serves as a .25 module gear.

      Today I have been testing it using an old 12V N scale
      motor outfitted with a spur gear mounted on the shaft
      and am running the switch points back and and forth
      perfectly!

      So as long as you use a common metric .25 module
      spur gear pressed on the end of any DC motor, you can run
      your old manual switches remotely where you need it.

      I am very interested in finding any cheap DC motors with
      a 2 mm shaft stuck on the end and maybe I can create
      a package deal for those who can't quite reach the manual
      wheels on their layouts.

      Regards to all,
      Reynard
