I have to ask, on the control stand...are the bronze plated circuit breaker covers (aka light switch cover plates) something original to the GE locomotive or are they something you picked up down at Home Hardware? :)
On the (much larger) GE locomotives I work with, they all have standard "light switch" circuit breakers in lieu of the EMD's Slide switch circuit breakers...Probably has something to do with GE making all kinds of electronic parts...
TNVR is Thurso & Nation Valley Ry, Right?

The light switch covers are brass original from the factory. Our former Minnesota Power GE 45 tonner at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth MN is the same inside as pictured.

The one on the left is GE original Cab heater, cab light and then front and rear headlight, the one on the right is a replacement from Home Depot, this is the cut off for the traction motors.
