Dorfan Circuit Breaker This is a unique accessory that looks interesting. It was tested and operated properly. This Dorfan Circuit Breaker is housed in a somewhat distressed but original die cast housing that is a replica of an actual railroad switchgear box. When the current that is passing through the two clips exceeds 6.5 amperes, the breaker will trip, causing an open circuit. The last two pictures show the test setup, using a light bulb in parallel with a Lionel #95 Rheostat. The load setup is driven by one of four ZW transformer outputs. The picture of the first test setup shows a normal load, with the switch on the breaker set to the right of center. In the second test, the voltage has been increased so as to produce a load of 6.5 amps, and the breaker trips to the center position. This breaker is very easy to use and operates at a trip level that should properly protect your valuable trains. A truly unique collector item. We have only seen this one in 25 years of selling toy trains. The casting is deteriorated and has been repaired. Circa 1930’s. (Item #30415) $80 includes Shipping to 48 contiguous states.
