I am kitbashing an HO Scale Mehano 4-4-0 locomotive to resemble as closely as possible to PRR's D16sb #1223 at The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. I am using Bowser parts, but the diagram for the generator has me puzzled as to which one I should use. Did 1223 have a Sunbeam, Turbo, Standard or Dual Pyle? Any one of those could easily resemble that of 1223, but I want to be as accurate as possible, right down to the last rivet.
Which one did she use?

Near as I can tell it currently has a Pyle National 1500 watt on it.

There is some rumor that while in service here at the Strasburg it had a Sunbeam stuck on it, so that it matched the rest of our locomotives.

The Pyles, while a nice gen had to have the steam end taken off to adjust the governors.

The Sunbeams had the governors hung on the end to facilitate easy adjustment.
