German PBX?
« on: April 07, 2016, 01:12:54 PM »
This was on display at the recent Shipshewana Indiana show. I was going to go back and get the information on the collector's name and the info on the system and the phones but got distracted and didn't. I remember it was German and the collector (lives in Michigan) said he found it in Canada. He had it working with a few European phones connected to it. The phone on the bottom right has glass bells.

Some W48 telephones were made with glass bells during the war, but probably other models, too, such as the Modell 36, the failed W36, which was then used for PABX stations for many years.
I don't recognize the switch right away, but will compare with some docs I have.

I think that PABX is a  T&N 15/2, having 15 extensions on two intercom paths.
