Post subject:  Need handles for Whitcomb diesel

It seems we only had one set of handles for our 65-ton Whitcomb diesel (pictured here: http://www.tmny.org/tmny0009.html), and the member who normally operates it had some bad luck, his car was stolen, tools and everything. So, we are seeking a complete set of handles, actually two or three sets would be nice! It has a K14 stand. Scrounging around we did find one handle that fits the independent, but none of our other Westinghouse handles for our transit stuff fits the train line brake or reverser. (The reverser key is about the size of a table knife with a tang on the end of it and a square keyway on the side). If you can provide a set of handles and reverser key, please call the Trolley Museum of New York at 845-331-3399.
