I thought it just crossed a ramp like the mail coach to make the head go up and down.

Hi, Brian, there is a tad more to it than that. There is a magnet attached to moving bit, which has a steel something in the track, When it crosses, the giraffe pops up. Will try triang website

I had one of those once but didn't take any notice of how it worked.

Is yours a Georgie or Georgina John? (read the link in Brian's #5 post)

Mine as most, only has one ear, due to the packing problems amply covered on the net. It is boxed, and otherwise like new, but no rail, mast, instructions, and cost me 9. When pushed across my desk, with a split pin carefully placed, it ducks, perfectly. Needs a bit more working out. Dont know about the gender. john

You may get away with opening up a large paperclip John, and inserting it into a couple of holes drilled in the trackboard at the ducking place. As the blurb says just plan for an air gap twixt magnet and attractor (paperclip) to avoid drag. A slip of steel strip glued to the sleepers would likely work just as well.
