UK and IRISH ROAD SETRIGHT SPEED USERS
The accompanying document comprises a listing of all known users of the Setright Speed ticket machine, issuing tickets from machines supplied new to road transport operators in the UK and Ireland. Where known, data on the Trambus machine from the 1930s is listed. Information in the main has been gleaned from the collections of Eddie Hewison, Paul Smith, David Standley and my own. Operators solely using secondhand machines without any operator-identifiable characteristics are not listed. Machines are listed in batches showing unique identifying characteristics. The minimum information required to identify individual batches is given – the listing is not intended to be an exhaustive treatise on fine differences in detail. The different types of operators’ titled ticket roll are not dealt with in this listing.
