Thanks, Ken.  Shortly after I met Tom Dressler about 1963 or so, we went 
over to that railroad display, which, if I remember right, was built and 
operated by a man named Busse.  I bought one of his O-gauge engines = a 
Varney 4-6-0 (B&O prototype) which was a fine running model.  I had it for a 
number of years.

So I saw that cab; it was most interesting.

That cab was carried to Roanoke in exchange for a 611 cab ride, must have 
been 1986 or so, it ended up in Birmingham and the gauges and such were 
removed for use on 611/1218. It was there when the program was ended and 
sold at the Auction in February 1995. If I recall correctly, it went to 
someone in the Carolinas and about 4-5 years back was sold at another 
auction. I have no idea where it went from there.
