I'm now the proud owner of the Ultimate machine pictured in the shabby state elsewhere on this site, U866 was purchased by me on Ebay at the end of 2004, the photo shown was the sellers illustration posted back then and I have since fully restored the machine to near original condition including a full repaint.
I also own ex Windermere Ferry Speed Setright machine number SY425, (pictured in my profile) which is in good condition but could do with a new ink ribbon being fitted one day if I feel brave enough to attempt such a task.
Would love to source an ex Southampton City Transport T.I.M. machine plus find some more Ultimate ticket rolls for the same operator.
