Leicester Museums / Beehive, Leicester

Part of the cash ball system from the Beehive, Leicester reinstalled first at the Museum of Costume and now at the Newarke Houses Museum. In the reconstruction the upper and lower tracks have been installed parallel, rather than sloping in opposite directions, and the trigger-controlled switch has been put on the upper (sending) track rather than the return track.

A switch between the cash desk and the two sales points. The trigger can be seen above the top track.

Close-up of the trigger which would operate the switch when the larger-size balls passed through. (Photograph courtesy of David Holt.)
