Does not have to have been 25Kv,what about 600v DC etc. May not be 3'6"or QR.
Wasn't there 2 small elect locos at a south side power house(SHOE and BOOT)if I remember correctly?
Can anyone inform me of the present whereabouts of SEA #1&2, as westernline said they may have been at BTM, but what about now?
I think one of them is in the ARHS collection at Kunkala.
Yup, that's right .... avoids confusion!

You can probably see now why I said it was confusing! It confused me for quite a while. If I've put you all to sleep - I'm sorry.
