What you are calling a loco control box was the "box" that housed the
cab-signal equipment for running on the ex-Pennsy lines that were
cab-signal territories. All ex-Pennsy road locomotives had these boxes and
most road units that PC bought new came equipped with them. If you see a
picture of a unit that is missing this box then it would never be able to
lead in cab-signal territory.

i noticed when i began modeling the pc a couple of years back that there
a box on the front walkway on the engineers side of most locomotives.
someone told me this was a "control box", but for what i never found out. i
even noticed early conrail locos had them too. so what is this box for and
did all locos have them. if your gonna model something, might as well be
