KK 69521's Collection http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/ KK 69521's Collection Glasgow TIM I 14 pre-war Glasgow Corporation TIM, number I 14. Complete with strap with matching canceller. Has clearly had a hard life, but in good working order. The dial springs back to 1/2d after each ticket - this must have been annoying for conductors... http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481211 108481211 Glasgow TIM I 14 This is what a pre-war TIM looks like with the outer casing off, and before the ink roller is de-crudded. Each fare value has a separate counter. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481212 108481212 Glasgow TIM I 14 Ticket Ticket from TIM I14 after re-inking. The X cut across part of the conditions was done when the 'evening' and 'Sunday' special tickets were withdrawn. Machine is set to 29 May 59. TIMs ceased to be in regular use in Glasgow in the early 50s, but problems with a supply of Ultimate tickets in 1959 led to them being taken out of store and used at some depots. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481226 108481226 London Transport Almex PDR - LTB 00155 Almex 'PDR' LTB 0155. New to London Transport c. 1967, and passed to London Country in 1970. These machines were built to contain a magnetic tape which recorded all tickets issued. This was later removed. Fare range was originally up to 11s 11d, converted after decimalisation to go up to 119p. The 'shillings' and 'pence' counters are both duplicated, and the counter near the key records how many times the machine has been opened with the key. These machines were used briefly by conductors at Bromley (TB) garage, where they were not popular mainly due to their weight. I'm not surprised. They were also used to introduce one-man-operation to the Green Line coach network. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481215 108481215 London Transport Almex PDR - LTB 00155 Rear of machine, showing - s - d display that was part of original equipment. Key (on left) opens door at bottom (hinges visible) - I assume the magnetic tape would have gone here. The casing now includes a fair bit of empty space. Wing-nut at top secures machine into stand on bus cab door for OMO operation. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481216 108481216 London Transport Almex PDR - LTB 00155 in original box. Unlike most, it does not have a garage code visible - was this a spare machine? http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481214 108481214 London Country Almex 0551 99p range Almex A machine. This is believed to have been new as a 'PDR' machine (see pictures of machine 00155) and rebuilt to fit in a standard Almex casing. It (like PDRs) does not have a 'throw-back' action, it also lacks a trip number counter and (despite the slot in the casing for the audit roll warning stripe) the facility for an audit roll. London Country standardised on Almex A machines during the 1970s, replacing Setrights initially on OMO buses, then in the late 70s (with few conductors left) on crew buses as well. '99p range' machines were cascaded to conductors, who had more time than OMO drivers to issue multiple tickets for high value fares. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481213 108481213 London Country Setright S 268 London Country Setright S 268, with box showing 'LH' (Leatherhead) garage code. London Transport bought Setrights in the 1950s, to replace Bell Punches for Green Line Coach conductors between 1953 and 1955. As the Green Line network was converted to OMO in the late 60s and under London Country in the 1970s, Setright machines were cascaded to country bus conductor use and (to a lesser extent) OMO bus driver use. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481217 108481217 London Country Setright S 268 Ex London Country Setrights tend to be in better condition than many of their contemporaries, having had a comparatively quiet life on Green Line coaches (longer distance so fewer passengers) and also getting regular overhauls at London Transport's ticket machine works at Effra Road, Brixton. They were delivered with a 2 part Insert slot on the front (same as a Crosville machine) but this was plated over at a fairly early stage. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481218 108481218 Potteries Setright P 076 From PMT's first batch of Setrights delivered in 1950. Worn but undecimalised. Bought circa 2003, possibly after use with Skills of Nottingham. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481219 108481219 Potteries Setright P 076 Conductor's eye view of PMT Setright. This machine only has a range of up to 12s 11 1/2 d. PMT, along with Midland Red and Crosville specified this for early batches, for reasons which are not entirely obvious... http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481220 108481220 Plessey TIM 38 Tim machine number 38. Believed to be new to Birmingham Corporation, and later with Morleys of Whittlesey, Cambs. The counter visible is a statistical counter that can be set to one specific fare value by means of a couple of Allen Key screws at the handle end. Fittings for OMO / desk use may not be original. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481222 108481222 Plessey TIM 38 TIM 38 - understood to be ex Birmingham Corporation. The 'shillings' selector is unusual, values are A, C, A 1/-, A 2/-, C 1/- http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481223 108481223 Plessey TIM 38 Ticket from TIM 38 believed to be ex Birmingham, later with Morleys, Whittlesey. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481221 108481221 Bradford (?) TIM 520 Early post-war TIM 520, believed to be ex Bradford, although the name has been ground off the print plate. Ticket classes are EMF, C, O (Early morning fare, child, ordinary) Fares range from 1d to 9d, with 9d being at the 'resting' position of the dial. I have heard it suggested these machines were the post-war batch of London Transport machine, which LT stopped using in 1959, and would therefore have been fit for further use. Or maybe the LT machines were just very similar in outward appearance. Can anyone shed any light on this? http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481224 108481224 Bradford (?) TIM 520 black painted lower casing, as supplied with some early post-war TIMs. There is a separate counter for each fare value and class, and three counters obscured (since only 3 classes are in use) http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=108481225 108481225 Maidstone & District Setright S 01 Maidstone & District's second Setright (S 00 was the first) dating from 1949. The returns punch was originally inside the body of the machine. Note the early style of class selection lever. Ticket classes 'WORKMAN' and 'SCHOLAR' have been modified to print 'KM' and 'L R' respectively. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=133693145 133693145 Maidstone & District Setright S 01 Ticket from Maidstone & District S 01 - never decimalised (by 1971, M&D were well on their way to one-man conversion using Almex A machines) Note the style of trip and stage number - two wheels both going from 0 to 31. Neighbouring company East Kent had the same specification. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=133693144 133693144 City of Oxford Setright 379 City of Oxford Motor Services short range Setright 379 dating from 1961. COMS bought both long and short range Setrights - presumably the short range were for urban services. Fare stage is set using what is usually the 'shillings' dial, the 'pence' wheel has values from zero to 1 shilling in half-pennies. The single cash counter shows an amount in pounds, shillings and pence. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=133693146 133693146 City of Oxford Setright 379 Ticket from Oxford 379 http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=133693147 133693147 Ultimate Side Hinge Bearing (circled in yellow) I am after one of these - If you happen to have a spare that you might want to part with, please get in touch. http://www.ticketmachinewebsite.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=138675970 138675970
