This Bundy clock was in regular use providing a reliable method of time recording for the Birmingham Bus and Tram system. The unit was re-commissioned by Councillor Worrall, the Chairman of the West Midlands Passenger Transport Authority at a special ceremony on 14th October 2001.
A paper tape transport with recording printer sits in the centre box. The time clock itself, can be seen at the top of the stack. A transfer drive spindle synchronises the two units.
The driver would place a key coded to his duty, in a slot in the centre box and turn it. The print mechanism then printed his key number and the arrival time on the paper tape.
We hope to recover a suitable tram shelter in the future to complete the scene.
