Rare - Vapor Car Heating Co - Thermostat Test Meter -Railroad Car Heating Tester:

This is a rare Thermostat Test Meter made by The Vapor Car Heating Company. The company brought steam heat through a boiler system to the passenger rail cars and was a standard until steam was phased out. The passenger cars were eventually equipped with controls for the passengers so they didn’t have to be subject to the whims of the train conductor for temperature comfort. This unit was for testing the heating and cooling systems in the rail cars. It is a model 2525 and looks complete including instructions in the removable top. It has not been tested. The wood case has a worn black cloth like material on the outside. The handle has been taped up and box is well worn. We picked this up at an estate sale in Smith Nevada and were told the man was an electrician during WWII and worked on big Navy ships as well as railroad cars. The case measures 8 ¾” by 5 ¼” by 2 ¾” and is being sold in “As Found” condition. Please email with questions. Good Luck!!
