Hi all does anyone know where I can find information on the prewar pendulum reversing mechanics.Am interested in the wiring,how it operates and if anyone sells parts for it.If I am correct I believe they were also pared with the wafer switch to lock it out.
I think Olsen's library has that info online.
Chuck is correct. It is located at Olsen’s Toy Train Parts, in their Library , under Prewar section. “Reversing & E units”. It shows two listings, E-65, E-65X. 65 has 5 nuts, 65X has 7 nuts, for contacts.
We have available replacement 'switch contact sets' for the pendulum. They were made in copper and include the attaching rivets. The original contacts are quite often burnt w/ a hole in the contact area making them hard to be reliable. Harry
