Hey Jack I was told that NYC did not use angled number boards on their head lights. I still enjoy how you make the “bling bling”. Keep up the great work.

Re: Rectangular cotter holes

Re: Unidentified Niagara device

Off the top of my head, without looking at the drawings it is either for the power reverse or the sanders. If you have the entire collection of drawings from the NYC historical society there is a piping drawing showing where all the piping goes to.
