cw, I saw that to from the rust marking where the battery holder would have been.

Just thought he would like some more fun.

How good do the shell paint jobs look for them Silentman?? I have many 218p 218t and 218c  I even built a twin motor 218c so I culd run a four motor A-B-A stump puller set. Love them ALCOs.

I still have the bracket and horn hoping I find a relay at a show for cheap maybe. I probably routed the wire through the mounting hole for now. Thanks again I will take a week off til I start to rebuild a 1666 that doesnt run and needs a new e-unit drum (it was shredded) for starters. Based on all this I might be in good shape thanks to you guys. Happy 4th!!!!
