Alco Firefly generating set - stock code 2684

A rare beast at the best of times, this "Firefly" came from an elderly gentleman who worked for the company that made them during the war, he also managed to acquire the radio receiver that went with it - I'd never seen one before.

Although grimy in the extreme, the engine turns over freely having been through the hands of our Sirius specialist (thanks David). The dynamo spins easily, although one end of the commutator shaft is bent.
