LSWR Brass Theodolite housed in a wooden carrying box. This wonderful instrument is engraved with the makers name Elliot Bros., London and is also engraved in large lettering L & S W Ry No 1. Measuring 15 in length with focus barrel retracted. The brass mounting plates are in the carrying box but there is no tripod. Fixed to the top is the levelling bubble but this has long broken and could, no doubt be repaired. The makers plate is missing from the box lid but because of this, the LSWR stamping is clearly visible, indeed the railway may well have removed the makers plate to stamp this. In all, a museum piece of railway history.
