Quote from: TelePlay on June 20, 2017, 09:10:40 PMI don't read AE TB well but that was the only AE upload in the last 50 uploads and it did say 470-920 so I assumed 499 was in the middle but I couldn't find anything related to any TB number including 499 in that 25 page document.Just followed you directions as to where it was, found that link and posted here to save other time, if it's the right one.
Quote from: Alex G. Bell on June 20, 2017, 09:21:23 PMThanks for trying. I used the browser page search function (ctrl F) and found 499 immediately.I see that it refers to a series of P-numbers which I assume were separate circuit labels thus 499 is not a stand-alone doc. as such. and the PDF is complete as it stands.

Quote from: TelePlay on June 20, 2017, 09:28:57 PMTried that first before. I didn't get any hits for "499" and didn't now when trying it again. Could you post the correct link. I'm going to stop looking.

Quote from: Russ62 on June 20, 2017, 10:25:30 PMHi, It was labeled Coin Telephone Handbook. It was 600 pages shipped wrapped in cellophane with no binder but punched with holes for a 3 ring binder which is what I put it in, probably a reprint or photocopy but quite readable. It covers GTE practices for 3 slot and single slot from early 1960s to early 1980s. Included was installation, maintenance, schematics, of these phones. Also booths, enclosures etc. I wish I had the 1940s or 1950s versions of this. Its not a payphone history book of which I have both versions, its strictly GTE practices which I found useful for the later A.E. payphones part of my collection. Russell
