Default Unknown charging box/lid

Hi all

Im trying to figure out what the item is that is partly visible in the picture. The text on the box says "????? charging" In other pictures of this truck the cover is gone and there is a C5 charging board.

Jordan,

I do not know for sure but there has been lots of discussion about a "Switchboard, Charging, No. 1" in the "11 set stuff" thread.

It might be worth sitting down for a long read through that thread.

Colin

Jordan, that sure looks like the Switchboard Charging No 1. Post those other pics and we can be sure.

Check out this thread on the Switchboard Charging No 5.
They might have used doors similar to the Swb No 1. That lettering says Swb Charging.

Ive read over the 11set thread and I firmly believe that this item is the same.
