About Me

Over 40 years railway experience, mainly mechanical and electrical engineering, but during the 1970s I was also a volunteer booking clerk - Edmondson card - on a preserved railway and even at that time £1000 in a shift was not unusual in the summer.

My machines include the following:-

Bell Punch

TIM Major (ex-Southdown P415, operator name removed)

Ultimate 5-roll 501978

Ultimate 2-roll 2u/P/111583, ex Liverpool Pier Head Mersey Ferries

Almex A1491 111356 5-band 00 to 99p and the class codes are S R C E P T D W X with ½S blocked off. 366 is shown on the exterior which prints as 0366

Almex 2154 219956 (European - small ticket roll) 6-band, £99.90 max in 10p steps with class codes - A B D E F G H K L and prints machine number 0377 although there is no number on the exterior

Setright Speed (ex-Bournemouth Corporation 169) 1p to 24p

Setright Insert 10098 (ex-Aldershot & District H34) = = to 11/11d and both trip and stage numbers 01 - 32

Almex 2001 213184 6-band £0.00 to £9.99 with class codes AS CS AR CR AF CF V1 V2 X and the last position is blocked off and is 'blank' on the keyband. 6552 is shown on the exterior and tickets. It was clearly used on a driver-only vehicle as the outside of the ticket roll compartment has a distinct groove worn in it. It is now altered by myself as part of getting it working properly. When received the yellow £ keyband was partially crushed and I've replaced it with a red one, fitted a new operating handle, ink ribbon, audit roll spool plus audit and ticket rolls. Looking at it, I believe that it may have been previously rebuilt as the bedplate has a slot for insert-type tickets but not the side - also there is no 'trigger' inside which would isolate the paper advance when the Insert is pushed in. But it works well now!

I also collect bus/tram tickets and have a good collection from Bournemouth and H&D. I am looking for any Bournemouth Ultimate and Setright Speed rolls (or part-rolls) plus any other machines, tickets or associated documents from the Bournemouth/Poole area.
