This looks like it would have been built in around 1925 as I know of one of these and thats the year we think it was manufactured. The Puffing Billy Railway also has one of this vintage plus a 1959 Waterlow 'Ultra' ticket printing machine. They are in working order.

I still have some new rubber covered rollers for sale for these machines. From a batch made for Malawi Railways around 1993.
