" It is' an'obje'ct' ‘of my invention to provide an
improved control panel that not only has a high
degree of simplicity in its construction and op
eration but is highly compact and is adapted to
be readily assembled in its normal position in
such a way that the multitude of usual pipe and
electrical connections can be easily and quickly
made between the control panel and the various
devices controlled from the panel.
Another object is to provide an improved con
tro1 panel having the foregoing as well as other
j ' pipes "diagrammatically? indicated-‘at? I 3'.”.>These
continuing‘pipes and rwire‘s‘are‘ then led-to-any
of the well-known control accessories and oper
ating devices which may be placed throughout
20 the locomotive and hence need not be described
here inasmuch as they do not constitute a part
of my present invention.
Various operating elements having inter-relat
ed instrumentation and operating connections
25 with the air brake standard and other parts of
the locomotive are normally associated with the
control panel and include an engine speed lever

instruments [6 and l'!, as well as any other
characteristics in addition to being rigidly sup
