mikielikes, this one is for you. This Loco Headlamp has sort of a kinship with your Gunderson Process device. The Pyle headlamp is from the 1930's and came from the DL&W RR. Back in the 1920's when Gunderson was trying to sell his apparatus to the Railroads, the RR's were concerned about how they would provide electricity to the machine. Gunderson's answer was simple he told them they could use the steam powered generator that powered the headlight on the Loco.
