New Artifact in the Museum

This engine order telegraph, or EOT, was recently donated to the museum.  The donor did not know what ship it had come from, but it is similar to the EOT aboard Hoga, and will give our visitors a chance to experience a little bit of what being on the bridge of a ship is like.

Everyone pitched in and helped restore this, but Joe Mathis, our resident electrical expert, was able to get all the lights and bells working again, and Cope Plastics generously donated new lenses for the sides, as the existing ones were badly scratched and worn, making it difficult to see the markings inside.

If you have the chance, you should come by and check it out.
