GE Donates Locomotive Control Stand to Museum

General Electric has donated a locomotive control stand that will be put on display later this year at the Lake Shore Railway Historical Society and Museum in North East, Pa.

It was used in a test lab as a simulator and is similar to those installed in Dash-8 series locomotives

Carrying serial plate No. 1, the control stand dates from early Dash-7 days and was the first GE locomotive stand to comply with Association of American Railroads standards.

It was used in Building 42 of the GE complex in Erie, Pa.
