The Gilbert 8B transformer is very simple. The breaker is in the Base Post leg and the direction button is in the 7V-15V leg. For the wiring diagram use the one for a 15B, they are wired the same, the only difference is the handle on a 15B lifts up for reversing rather than having a pushbutton.

The 8B's were made from 1940 to 1952. There are some slight differences over the production years but all were wired the same.

I recommend you look at the site traindr.com/transformers/. Everything there is to know about Gilbert transformers is on that site.
