Had to rewind a few times to verify but does anyone recognize that gold colored thing? The show is shown at the bottom of the screen.... About the failed spacewalk on a Gemini flight.

Yep, got one just like it.... Well kinda like it. Well OK nothing like it.
To answer your question, I ain't got a clue.

It was a prop in a Gemini capsule mockup for the show. Pretty cheesy set design , but I guess everyone has a budget!

Does look like an MRC throttle. The orange thing on the right looks a lot like a lit lamp with an orange shade, as well.


I'm trying to internet find this but in MR or RMC back then they had pics of the demonstration of the moon landing using HO models on HO track. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
