That's gonna be a great display! Interconnecting multiple Panasonic switches is a neat touch.

I've had the wall finished for some time now. The "wall" is a part of the room we spend most of our time in, kind of a "studio apartment' within our home, the space includes my office I use for my business. Below are some pictures of the phones on display there. I enjoy moving and changing the displays of the phones.
Of the apx 50 phones on display in the room, about 14 of the phones there are wired to the two PBXs and will ring and call each other as well as other phones located throughout the house.

I enjoy bringing visitors into the room and seeing their faces as they see the collection for the 1st time. When I call the PBX and the all take turns ringing they really light up! Phones "should be fun" and mine are!

This is really neat! Wonderful display you have going on there. I'm just beginning my phone collection, but hope to get a portion of what you have there.
