Until today I had only discovered two manufacturers of the split-flap displays of days passed, Solari and Krone. Today I have another, Omega, the departure boards and track signage for Grand Central station has recently been overhalled by a restoration firm called Olek Lejbzon & Co. this firm replaced the old split-flap displays with new LCD units while refurbishing the existing (listed) housings.

The firm have been gracious enough to send me a bunch of photos of these split-flaps and I am in the process of negotiating the purchase of one or two of the units. They are very old by the looks, the design is much more rudimentary than the Krone split-flap displays featured in my post about Jave.de’s project.

For more info about Olek Lejbzon & Co.’s restoration of aspects of Grand Central Station, take a look at these two pages:Hutchinson Track Indicator Restoration, Other. Thanks again for the images…
