This is the work of one man. We had a number of contributors for information and measurements, but ]this is Bob's work alone. He has been working on restoration of the automatic bell ringer, and has completed the cab reverser wheel. Credit where it's due. Thanks, Bob!

Be sure readers compare the DeWachter replacements (scratch built) with what he started with off the locomotive as found.
Bob will have one of the on display at the Amherst show. Please stop by the New Englnad Steam table to see them in person.

Heres a few shots of the classification light carcasses that we had as a starting basis.
The metal worms were hard at work. Both had sheetmetal lenses welded on and the bracket hangers have been removed and reused.
