    Steve, are you looking for some type of Hall effect (magnetic proximity) sensing relay? Here is a page of this type of device that you might be interested in. They come in various configurations by voltage and current. Small enough to toggle a Tortoise. Might be a possibility.

      Do you even have a picture of what you are wanting to replace. You call it an electrical style switch activator. Are you referring to a Tortoise, Switch Tender, Blue Point, or Peco type electrical style switch activator??????? Or, are you referring to something completely different?

        Steve, Are you talking about a model that looks like a prototype electric switch throwing device?

          If you're looking for a prototypical casting to mount on the headblocks, I use Details West #903. Searching for "ho scale switch motor casting" I see there's a 3D printed item representing a GRS model 5A from Multiscale Digital.

              Humor and enlighten me, what is a "DW 903 thingy". So I can continue to help others when needed.

              Edit; never mind, I just read what James posted. Now it's clear to me.
