See the rest of this site for the 2003 to
2013 project period.
Since the spring of 2003 when the project started, ( and even the
majority of 2002 whilst we planned what could be done ). The ict1301 project
was run at Buss Farm. This has now changed and the machine has moved to a new home, visit us often to find out the latest news now the machine has arrived.
The resulting media coverage has resulted in a swamp of new contacts so if we have not got back to you yet,
remember we are just two people trying to run all of this. Be patient and we will respond to all of you who wish us well.
Does any visitor have any information about the PF56 ?
As used on the 1900 Series. If so the
1900 Project needs to know.
Or email this project and we will pass it on.

The 1301 Prog Ref Manual and
Initial Orders Manual are available along
with many other manuals here.
We still have a page for the GEC factory days in the 1960's.
