Platform Ticket Machine, cast iron construction standing a full 84" tall with a BR enamel plate measuring 30½" x 6½" fitted to the front. The enamel plate reads 'B.R Platform Tickets 1D - See Conditions On Ticket - To Be Given Up On Leaving The Platform'. There is a further enamel plate affixed to the flat above the 'Pull' handle 'Press Penny In Slot And Pull Handle To Full Extent'. There are 2 keys available which open the ticket chute and the coin box aperture but not the opening above the 'Pull' handle nor the side aperture. There is a hairline crack on the bottom front panel which doesn't detract. Last transported in two sections around 30 years ago, the base, containing only the coin box, looks to be fixed to the main body of the machine by four bolts and these may require freeing before dismantling. This would separate the machine into two parts, one being 33", the other 51" making it much more manageable. After 30 years of standing, it will require some work to get it operational but there is no reason to doubt that this is achievable. Note that this is being sold from the vendor's premises in the Blackburn area of Lancashire and the successful buyer will need to collect from there by mutual arrangement through us and the vendor.

The fine brass fusee movement in fully restored and in full working condition has very early shaped shoulders and tapered ringed pillars and is stamped 8488 and scratched 446 on the backplate, the movement characteristics point to a movement of the period 1850-1860. The dial has been repainted by the GWR probably in 1922 when the clock acquired its GWR numberplate 446 and possibly the standard GWR broad spade hands. This clock number is mentioned in Ian Lyman’s Railway clock book as having been sent in for repair to the clock works at Reading on 26th July 1922 when it was numbered 446, it is also stated that is was ex Nantyglo.
