Notice the foam powder hopper. We have one of the old accompanying powder mixers in the fire museum. ALF-Foamite brand.

I notice a pull chain for the automatic door closer. A lot of Raleigh’s stations still have the mechanism mounted on the bay ceiling next to the end of the door tracks but the chains have been removed.
