Re: subchat back,

On the prototype Bluebird unit, there was a button board in the middle (C) section similar to the one on the steels where the C/R operated from. The Chicago artics also had a similar arrangement. The production Bluebirds had outdoor controls and steps that were sort of built into the anticlimber. Some later photos of the Bluebird seem to show indoor controls resembling the R-16 type “faucet handles” but none of the phots show a really close up view of them. What the photos do show is that the outside door controls were removed and covered over.
