Database Manager on July 15, 2009:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- According to John Peragallo III, in an e-mail 7/13/09, this was a rebuild with new chests and switching of the existing 1916 Felgemaker - which had been electrified sometime in the 1960's by a south New Jersey regional builder retaining the existing attached keydesk arrangement. Several stops were also added at the time of the Peragallo work.
