Note the absence of track and bumpers on top of this 5d test set. According to John Palm, this is as-built. "With only two or three sections of track on the top, a repairman couldn't get a good idea of how a locomotive was running," explains John. "With this set, the repairman connects power from the unit to a longer section of test track where the locomotive can run a longer distance." He acquired this from the original store where he worked years ago.
