    Did some of the 4500s come with Boxpok drivers from Baldwin? I have only seen 4500s with Baldwin universal disc drivers.

    Here is a link to an on-line article about drivers that explains differences:

    It has a link to a Boxpok driver with spoke wheels on the same locomotive for comparison:


    There is a prime example of a Baldwin disk driver (as fitted to 4500 - 4514) for comparison at this link:

    Another sterling example of Boxpok is at this location:


    If I recall, there was a diagram of a Boxpok driver on Frisco.org somewhere.
