Thorn-EMI Metrolink Ticket Machine (1992)
This ticket machine is one of 80 which were installed in 1992 at the Metrolink stations and tramstops between Altrincham and Bury; the first phase of the network. This particular machine was installed at the Besses o th Barn tramstop. It is now in the Bury Transport Museum at Castlecroft.

These machines had 24 destination buttons with 5 buttons for ticket type. Originally, 7 buttons were for Metrolink zones and 16 for British Rail zones with one spare. This was changed in April 1993 to give a button for each individual Metrolink station (26 in total at that time) with the remaining 3 buttons for BR zones.

These machines remained in service until spring 2010 when, after the network was expanded, they were replaced by the current touchscreen, multi-lingual (and bright yellow!) machines manufactured in Germany.
