A red and cream (perhaps originally red and white) station ticket dispenser made by Bing for use with model railways.

Design

The dispenser is designed to look like a piece of station furniture, with red sides and back, a dark blue base, decorative white top, and three white dispenser areas with text printed in black.

The upper panel says "BOOKING OFFICE" / "BOOK DIRECT TO ALL PARTS", and there are then six ticket-holding areas, marked

  • LONDON / OXFORD
  • LONDON / DUBLIN
  • DOVER / OSTEND
  • VICTORIA / BRIGHTON
  • LONDON / MANCHESTER
  • ST.PANCRAS / LEICESTER

Tickets are loaded into each of the six sections, and can be slid out from the bottom to the stack, one at a time.
