Another to add - again in the UK.
The On/Off pushbuttons have gone, and the original switchgear is no longer in use - replaced by a more modern starter. Note all the wiring is now external.
5-spoke cast-iron handwheels (3rd type).
Second type of fence - the classic RB fence as fitted to most RB buzzers.
Narrow "Brookhirst" switchgear door.

RB 664 - test 32853, of 1949.
The machine is part of batch A-2372.
Batch A 2372 - RBs 630 to 701 - 72 machines commissioned 1st August, 1947;
RB 664, test 32853, of 1949 - United Kingdom - Wadkin Ltd. tin tag;
RBA 666, test 32855, of March 1949 - New Zealand - Wadkin Ltd. tin tag;
RB 677, test 32956, of 1949 - United Kingdom - Wadkin Ltd. tin tag.
What are the chances that test 32854 will be RB 665 .
