FPE in Unlikely Place


Recommended Posts

I find it odd that the panel is labeled in English in a Soviet submarine!

Well, it's no longer a Soviet submarine. It's a floating museum in San Diego. I was there last fall and had some time to kill, so I toured some of the boats.

I believe that is a Canadian Federal Pioneer.

That is the popular colour for late 60's and younger FP breaker panels. It looks like the other j-boxes came from the same supplier.

Can we call that a Sub panel? [:)]

You are correct. In the high-res version, I can see the words Federal Pioneer Stab-lok.

So, Canada was supplying the Soviets with electrical panels during the cold war?

Probably one of the few that we'll ever see.
