Reverser Control on C7 Atlantics

Post by suggs » Sat Dec 29, 2018 9:14 pm

I am scratch building a C7 Atlantic (1942/7 period No 716). It is my understanding at this time the steam controlled reverser had been changed to manual control from the cab. I have been unable to find a photo with any detail in the cab at this time. My question is can anybody help me as to what the control was ie lever or wheel and if it was a wheel did it have one handle or two?
Any information would be greatly appreciated
