Asking for a friend, he is currently modeling the Maybrook in the early PC years. We know the BN power went as far as Maybrook yard but there is no evidence of BN power making it to Cedar Hill. Does anyone have any knowledge of this agreement or any pics to prove they actually did. Cab signals were definitely an issue.
I’m fairly certain that the pooled power wouldn’t have gone on the New Haven. I grew up in New Haven territory, and have never heard of any Q power. Maybe it ran on some trains to the east coast. The pooled power might have more likely ran from somewhere like Cicero, or even Galesburg. On EL it probably ran to Marion, OH, where cars were classified for points east.
