Taking a photo of the lamp is no problem. Uploading it and feeding it into the Electric Mangle is ! I'm as good at this IT stuff as playing the Mongolia Nose Flute !

Bear with me a day or three and I'll get the intruction book out !!

Thanks for info on the K5. Used to love the sound of the Crosville K6's. The side gangway F15 Woodside to Burton - what a run !

Forgot to add this to previous pics of B'head Corp.Transport stuff.

A B.C.T. Setright ticket machine. These were in use from the early '50's to the '70's. They just survived decimalisation. Might be remembered by some.

Also, the conductor's box and crew PSV badges. Remember pestering the conductor for the roll ends - only for them to get hurled around the playground !!

That deserves to be on its own post - the god of all tinkerable boxes. Cheers Pinz

Great the lamp pics! Any idea of the makers? I assume it takes MBC lamps.
I suppose they are collectable now. Many thanks for bringing back the memory.

Not sure of the makers Bri. I'll have a poke inside later. The fitting is a standard (as original) BC socket. Takes the original "golfball" BC 24v bulbs. I run it through a 240/24v transformer.

I'll PM you later with some more info.

Mike.
