do YOU have an Capersville ? I do not have an Capersville - I do have a paper schematic diagram.
ipdb, http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=431 has a schematic, fuzzy resolution. There I read "SCM-4B". BUT in the ipdb-GERMAN-schematic it is written "4E" - well, maybe we can interpret it as 4B faded to 4E ?

in 2013 / 2014 I made myself a copy of old ipdb-stuff - a PDF (english version) - 18 pages, hard to read.

Here in my JPG i show my paper schematic - NO letters to the Score-Motor-Switches, I also show the ipdb-german version and the "old ipdb stuff".

Can You look-up in Your Capersville at Score-Motor-4 - question: Is there a switch with wires "15-Red-White", "18-Red-Black" ? Is it Switch 4B ? Or is it Switch-4E Or what ? Greetings Rolf

Hey, I could possibly have an answer in two weeks' time! You do have a few days, no?

I loaded that to IPDB recently from the docs in my Capersville. Here is a pic of my schematic...

So your paperwork is identical to what rolf_martin_062 calls the 'very old IPDB schematic'.

So we're supposed to have a look at switch stack 4 (count from the left) of the score motor, find a switch there with wires "15-Red-White", "18-Red-Black" and then what? How do I know whether that switch in the stack is called 'B' or 'E' or 'Robert' ?!
