1/8 Scale Alco Type G Power Reverse
A full description of this Power Reverse
and its operation may be seen in Locomotive Cyclopedia, 1930,

The stroke of the power reverse is 1-7/8"
and is designed to be used with a Baker valve gear. I was told

100% in forward and 66-75% in reverse. These units are located
in Santa Barbara, California. They are ready to install on your
