Seamus,

     Thanks for posting this video; it was certainly interesting, informative, and enlightening!

Best regards!

They must have had a right laugh pulling all them fuses and insulators out when cutting off the old system and cutting in the new, it looked like a bit of fun... :D

Thanks for the link to another very interesting video. Thank goodness the Telcos recorded these moments in time for us all to see! I enjoyed when the people of the Upminster Exchange  "got their collective chains yanked" when the cut-overs took place  :D

AE_Collector:
Has anyone any idea if this YouTube exists elsewhere on YouTube or the www? The link has been dead for awile now and I am amazed at how often I see that someone (a guest) is looking at this topic. It must be linked to in another forum or web site somewhere.
