Railway station photo 1976
« on: March 24, 2014, 03:58:24 PM »
Guys if there is a place to post pics, I didn't see it. I thought this an interesting photo. It is the C&O RR station in St Louis, MI. Credit for the photo goes to Charlie Whipp, and the http://www.michiganrailroads.com/RRHX/RRHXHome.htm website. Notice the 151AL still in use (I assume 151 since it has a Bulldog transmitter). Now the desk set looks sort of like an AE80.

looks like it's just a candlestick-style microphone.

And it does look like an early AE 80 beside it.

No, I guess we don't have a specific area for "old Telephone Related pictures". We could work on that.

Or we could just go by phone type and likely put it into the Candlestick area. Whether an ebay listing or a specific picture like this probably doesn't really matter. Its the item in the picture being discussed.

Just thinking out loud....Terry
