Equipment awaiting restoration

  Our current project is the restoration of a Great Northern Telegraph (GNT) Undulator Model 309. As far as we can tell this is a rare item as we can find no working example anywhere and with no supporting documents, manuals, diagrams etc we have our work cut out. To see the how we are progressing have a look at Project Undulator

  On the latest road trip down to RNAS Yeovilton we managed to save a good haul of communications equipment from the 'skip'. The following photos are of just a few of the bits of 'kit' recovered. Now the job of seeing if we can get it all working starts.

  A great deal of equipment was rescued from the old WWII Communications Centre situated in the underground tunnels at Corsham. If you wish to see more information and photos of these tunnels then Google Burlington Mines - look at Area 21. Many pieces of the equipment have now been restored and can be seen working in the museum. The following will undergo restoration as and when time permits. As can be seen the equipment has rust patches (some heavy) and concretion has formed on some parts especially the wiring. Next stage is to try and obtain any documentation and maintenance manuals before restoration starts.
