  3. Correction to the part addressing the power/dynamic selector on the control stand; That photo shows the later type control stand with separate dynamic and throttle. There is no “selector” switch on that control stand. The 8888 had an earlier version, where the throttle/dynamic used the same lever, and transition between power and dynamic was made via a ratcheting lever above, and to the right. These selectors could (and still can be) finicky, and so the newer stand was designed with two separate levers. Not only that, but if you’ll notice that the dynamic and throttle handles are shaped differently to avoid confusion, and increases in power or dynamic are made inverse of one another to avoid confusion as well. Hope this helps.

  6. Superb post however I was wanting to know if you could
    write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a
    little bit more. Kudos!

  7. I’ll second Jeffrey Ramone’s reply. The control stand shown has no selector lever like the 8888 had. The photo shows a later version with the separate throttle and dynamic levers. I can attest to them being “finicky”.

    Also the “headlight” switches labeled are the control, generator field, and fuel pump breakers, not the headlight switches. Those are the twist knobs at the bottom of the control stand, one for each end of the engine.

  8. It was hard to find your site in google. You should create some high
    Pagerank contextual backlinks in order to rank your page.
    I know – writing articles is very time consuming,
    but contextual backlinks are the best type of backlinks.

    readable articles in minute, just type in google

  9. It’s to bad csx 8888 was scrapped it could’ve been donated to a museum and its story told to those who come to see
