Jan is correct.I've never heard of a B737 with the F/O tiller,considering the cable Routing it would take some work & added components.
Unless a indirect drive between the Two tillers was present.

Hawk21M, if you look at the Southwest Pic you posted, on the F/O's side, it looks like there is a blanking plate for the optional F/O's tiller. Also, I have seen a few Boeing schematics with a listed "Optional" tiller.

No, the 737 was never built with an F/O NWS tiller. The B707 was the only Boeing commercial jet built with a F/O NWS tiller in any significant numbers. The 727 was also never built with an F/O NWS tiller.

Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 12): Why was the F/O Tiller not considered on the B737 ever.Was the probability of a snag on the Only tiller Available very low to overlook this.
737 F/Os are considered by many airlines to be too inexperienced to be trusted with tight turns on the ground, requiring the use of a tiller. (The judgement required to avoid collisions and keep off the grass being what it is.) Consequently F/O tillers weren't normally fitted. Conversely, all A320s (equally junior F/Os) have two tillers.
The chances of a tiller system failure must be remote. There's still the pedal steering and differential power/braking as a back up. You can always stop and wait for a tug
The glass isn't half empty, or half full, it's twice as big as it needs to be.
Come on people, just because you've never seen or heard of something doesn't mean it doesn't exist (especially in aviation)
Hell, boeing/airbus would add an extra set of wings as a customer option if you payed for it!

You are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Here I was, listening to every professional contributing to this highly esteemed forum, and.............believing that no 737 ever exists with a .............F/O nose wheel tiller.....and then.......boom..............you appear with pics showing two models of the 737 with the NWS. From what I have seen in my lifetime, the KSSU cockpits from the '80's were always very well equipped, and the pics just posted from Vain, respects the former KSSU group even more.
Thank you very much for your pics Vain, and long live this forum & Airlines.net
