Marco,

Thanks for the link. Like the looks of the Norden box: exactly what I hoped it would look like.

Very nice - looks like an ex-tablet machine galvo. Is the carcase made out of MDF?

Presumably the labels are temporary, because it would be a shame to have something that looks so nice with those labels.
ND: Why is there a door handle on the inside of my airing cupboard?
MF: Because it's the fire exit from Narnia.

I like David Lynch films. I don't consider incomprehension to be a barrier to enjoyment.

The Wareham - Worgret Jn. Token Release Machine.....


???? I note the photo caption says Norden - Worgret Jcn, I'm assuming the latter is correct?

Where will the token actually be collected/delivered at the NR end ???

In the final arrangement it will collected/issued at Wareham station (one EKT intermediate instrument being provided at the London End of the Up Platform and one EKT terminal instrument being provided at the London End of the Down Platform). The actual final EKT section will be from Corfe Castle to Worgret Junction only it being TCB from there to Wareham station.

Yes the case is MDF, it will be veneered in due course. Engraved labels will be inset into the plungers.

That's a release unit, isn't it?
