QE2's original teleprinter.
« on: Sep 05, 2016, 05:09 PM »
My cousin is one of many curators of the Telephone Museum near Worthing, UK.

One of their prized possessions on display is the QE2's original teleprinter.

Built in 1952, it was converted to run at 240v (from 110v) and was used aboard the QE2 to prepare wages documentation for telex to Southampton. This allowed crew to receive their pre-prepared wage packets when the ship arrived. It used the Murray Code.

I'm not sure when this model was retired.

It's interesting where you can find bits of QE2 around the world!!

Were QE2s propellers the most powerful in the world?
