To me the fascinating thing about Ultimates was the specific ticket combinations and double issues to make up higher fares than there were ticket values for. By using these specific combinations in conjunction with the instructions issued to staff an audit of the number of higher fare values issued could be calculated.

Hi Martin,
The Ultimate was/ is a extremly simple mechanicle ticket machine when compared with others around at the same time.

The Ultimate sold well to operations with a smaller budget to spend on ticket equipment ,such as Council / Corporation run bus services,the ribbon is simply moved as and when by opening the side doors at each end and and pulling the ribbon to a unused section,this was proberbly performed by depot staff rather than the Conductor.

There is a manual for the Ultimate avaliable from www.ticketrolls.co.uk .

What a stunning collection-You even have a "Duplex Punch" made by the Railway Register Mfg Co.! On a more mundane level, I have yet to see how the ribbon was shifted on the "Ultimate". The patent is no help! Presumably it was folded under the side straps, and "pulled" manually a small amount each shift? It is strange that there is no manual on the site covering the Ultimate? It must have been awkward to run out of a roll in mid operation, whereas fanfolded ticketscould be pre-loaded, though the count would change. Finally, a really 'naff question-"How does one access the Members List?!"
Many thanks,
Martin.
