I am repurposing an old EMD panel for a fun project. The backside is populated with Otto microswitches. The switches show the contact arrangement but nothing else.
Would anyone happen to know the electrical ratings of these switches? Voltage and amperage ratings? The wiring was all #10 which indicates pretty robust contacts.

Thanks,
Bob D.

Does anyone know of a source for replacement numbered plastic strips that are used for throttle and dynamic brake position indicators on these EMD panels? New or used.
Thanks,
Bob D.

Have you talked to Larry's Truck or any other rebuilders?

Powerrail Distribution rebuilds those second generation control stands. I feel sure they have a source of both new and used plastic indicator strips.

Hope this helps,
