Ex McDonald Steel Alco S-2 No. 777 was converted to remote control in the 1970s, and as part of that conversion the mechanical throttle was replaced with a dastardly air throttle. We are restoring the mechanical throttle but need to find a throttle handle to complete the installation.
So before we go through the effort of having one made, I'm putting out some feelers in an attempt to find an existing handle. Got one in your collection? Or a parts Alco that one could be taken off of? Let me know. Thanks!

Rick, Try calling George Silcott (D) Streigals, or RELCO.
