Cumbria Clock Co. Gillett & Johnston waiting train movement.


 While image searching online for "waiting train clock" I came across a 2017 Cumbria Clock Co. Facebook discussion on the very rare Gillett & Johnston waiting train movement. 

 There was a superb B&W image. I have reproduced the largest version here: 960x862 pixels. For non-commercial, educational purposes. Click on the image for an enlargement.

Welcome to the Cumbria Clock Company - The Cumbria Clock Company

 The G&J movement is fascinating and beautifully constructed on a flat back plate. No doubt these movements were produced to order. In such small numbers that there was no need for investment in the main frame, cast iron moulds as used by Gents.

 I believe this is the fourth example of a G&J WT I have covered on my blog. This is by far the sharpest image of the mechanism so far.

 Here is the Ottawa G&J WT. Similar, but not the same. The Ottawa contact mechanism is much simpler.
