David Stewart General Wow, The inside is in great shape! How about that old radio> 8/10/2008 12:49:21 AM
Tim Weidner General Thank You Sir, The MP&RE Staff at the RCT&HS have worked very hard over the years to restore and maintain Reading Company equipment like this. The Radio is an example of how we pride ourselves in keeping the equipment as original as possible. 8/10/2008 11:30:28 AM
Ted Marshall General Very cool. Always a priviledge to enter the cab of a working locomotive. 5/30/2009 11:39:17 AM

gordon vincent General This is not the as built control stand.A GE KC108 throttle and dynamic brake handles is seen here instead of the round protusion with the throttle and reverser/dynamic brake handle. 8/18/2012 2:07:48 PM
Tim Weidner General You are correct! The 5308 originally had Dual Control. This entire control stand is a modification done by Conrail. They did use a good portion of the original hardware but the controller itself was not. 9/4/2012 11:19:43 AM
