Are you looking to replace the original rotary switch or is this a new installation?

If you need to replace a broken switch, then one mentioned by jpwisc is the same brand as your original one (and probably of similar construction). You might be able to take the switches apart and exchange the round shaft with the flattened shaft.

New installation. I was using keyed DPDT switches for my turnout control and I think for the new layout I wanted to try something a little different.

Checking what Mouser and Digikey have in stock, old-style large rotary switches are going the way of the Do-Do bird.  There are more physically smaller ones available, but those have smaller diameter shafts.
