i was going to use caboose industry ground throws on my turnouts. for the heck of it i was experimenting with just using my finger to move the points of the turnout. they are n scale atlas code 80 turnouts. i then ran an engine and a couple of cars back and forth through the turnout without any problem and repeated this with the points on the other route without a problem. all my turnouts are on the front-side of the layout and i do not need to reach over any structures or such to get to them. also i am using foam so figured i would not need to secure the ground throws into the foam (tough to use screws in foam) if i use my finger to control turnouts, do you feel there are any issues i should be aware of before going this route ? thank you for your response.
