Here's the switch and a metric ruler for size. Also shown is a small piece of a burned out can motor magnet which activates the switch. As you can see, the switch can be mounted somewhere on the locomotive and the tiny magnet can be inside a tool box, etc. which is then laid in proximity to the switch and it is "ON", remove the tool box and it's "OFF". Very easy and this gets rid of the pesky little toggle switches. The local Hobby Town has "rare earth" micro magnets which would work but I had this magnet and my being cheap, would rather spend $0 than spend $15 for a few magnets. Now, to install the switches...that will happen in a while. More to come.
