Railway Telephones - The Peel-Connor/ GEC Photo Archive

Brookwood platform

These photos were rescued by Bob Freshwater from the former Peel-Connor factory before it was demolished. They record some of GEC's railway telephone equipment installed from the 1930s through to the 1950s. The early ones are of electrical control installations. The later ones are train control offices and equipment.

The files are presented in a series of photo galleries with an automatic slideshow. To stop the slideshow click on a thumbnail or the navigation arrows
