I purchased years ago from a garage sale the NYC 2344C - B unit. A very clean hole was drilled thru the side of the car body into the metal frame beneath and was secured with a screw. Has anyone seen this previously. Did Lionel drill the hole or was it done by some other person? In these two photos I have removed each screw to show the screw hole.

I own 1 original B unit and 3 others that I acquired. All very clean and in like new condition. None of them have the hole that you describe. And with all the research I have done on the NYC B units I have never read or seen one with holes that you describe. That had to have been done by an external party. I have a very unique B unit with duel motors. It looks like it came from the factory that way it was done so nice, but after doing tons of research on it I could not see that Lionel ever manufactured one. But in all my research I never saw or read about one with holes drilled as you describe.
ConrailFan, can you share some photos of your powered B? It’d be fun to see. Thanks
ConrailFan, Thanks for your input and knowledge.
