I’m looking for help trying to source the toggle switch below. It’s a SPST panel mount, but I really don’t want to buy 20 of them as I’ll never use them. Only marking is shown in the picture. It came out of a Lionel Christmas Music car from about 20 years ago that I’d like to get going again.86318DD2-76EE-485A-878D-5D0CACB89154

Is it a simple off/on switch or a momentary one you are looking for? I'll look in my stash later today.

It is indeed an On/Off!

At under $3 for 20 on eBay for SPDT mini slide switches delivered to your door(Amazon has them too), you can't drive anywhere to procure them more economically. Hopefully someone has a couple sitting around and can mail them to you for the cost of a first class stamp.

The price is certainly right, its the sitting on 19 of them for the rest of my life that drives me away lol

Send your mailing address to me, my email is in my profile.  I'll send you a couple of switches.

As long as it's less than 1/4" thick.  If less than 1/4" you can send it non-machinable (so-called Butterfly stamp) for 75 cents.  If just over 1/4" my experience is you can typically slide by without the USPS flagging it (adding postage-due, etc). But per the rules, as soon as it's more than 1/4" thick the cost rockets to "USPS package shipping" rates which starts around $5.

Many call a switch like shown above, a slide switch.  Slide switches can have more than two positions also.  Toggle switches usually have a lever that rocks between two positions like a typical wall switch.

My two control panels use a few dozen slide switches to control voltage to each 6 or so feet of track and select which transformers control which loop, and operate 15 or so lights or types of lights.  Switches are controlled by momentary push buttons.

Just saying
