will now take a look at the late '40s E6 AB set, which happens to be mine along with the previously viewed E1 set. The E3
set belongs to Chris Cinque. This late '40s E6 set is numbered 12 and carefully detailed after the actual number 12 in the
late '40s. There are 11 photos attached on this set.
By the late '40s, there had been a number of changes to the E6s,
just like the earlier Es. The E6 had gone for a bit more stainless steel than the E3. Only the roof and ends were silver on
this model. Here are the changes from as built:
1. The small number board over the windshields was added.
small nose number boards were just painted over and no longer used.
3. The smaller second horn was removed and replaced
with another larger Leslie Tyfon air horn.
The pilot steps and top mounted bell appear to have been as built or added very
shortly after, so that is not a change on these units.
