For that price you can get two sets and power the B unit. I did that on my City of San Francisco.

Just went there to check on them... they're sold out now.

Guess a lot of you guys found good uses for this mechanism.  :-)

I had been procrastinating ... UNTIL NOW!!

Bought two of each B&O. Not a bad deal for that price.
