I'm a fan of the more esoteric "phone from..." signs. Like "phone from horse" and whatnot. Thanks for the compliment. I'm proud of how it turned out once I got it repaired and reassembled.

I like your "booth". The phone has the "long" handset cord, which makes me think it is  a "Phone from Car". Southwest bell liked to use the engraved handsets on "Phone from Car" Payphones.

So, I'm pretty sure this is a good problem to have, but I had to make a cheat sheet to remember which phones are hooked up where. Also, I need a system with more extensions!

But what about ext 18?... Connect to that one and a phone, somewhere in the depths of the attic, rings?  :D

I wish! Extension 18 is inoperative. I've been looking for a new 616, but at least this one is better than my last one.
