 No.4310

Spotted in a Swedish magazine from 1952. This is a dial-and-pointer station indicator from a Milanese tram.

 No.4313

Interesting, any idea anyone, was it tachometer and time based or just a simple wind-up clock?

Haven't seen anything like this before.

 No.4316

Seems there were several methods.
1. An electric signal at each stop.
2. Odometer control on diesel or steam lines.
3. Manual change.
