Restoring miniature ETS machines

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I'm involved in a small projects with a few members in the club ( wexford MRC ) to try and restore a pair of miniature Webb and Thompson ETS machines , once widespread on the railways.


We have three units , but only one is in any way complete. In particular we are missing the galvanometer and the locking coiks from the other two.


I have just received the wiring diagrams etc


I was wondering if any members here could help or might know where I might locate bits and pieces for these machines ( or someone might donate them. )


The idea is too have a fully working pair as a permanent exhibition in the club house


Now if I could find a pair of harpers block instruments !!!!!

But we are missing a Galvo ( i.e. the needle indicator ) and its brass bezel and glass, If anyone comes across one and would like to donate it ( as a loaner ) that would be great
