IIRC the original TXE4 design was the "rectory" one, installed in Brum'
somewhere.


Rectory exchange, on the edge of Rectory Park, behind a pub on Rectory

Road,
Sutton Coldfield.
I spent the first half of 1974 there during installation.

Martin,

Here's a reminder of what it looks like from the outside, these days, no
doubt just the same although I'm sure the inside bears absolutely no
resemblance to 74.

I understand Ian J. was also involved with the installation/commissioning of
Rectory.
