|Damon||Unit 4, 36 Ernest Avenue, West Norwood, SE27 0DJ. Set up from 28th September 1988. Electronic Service and Distribution Centre (ESDC). Part of LBL's Revenue systems section and formed a base for a team of Field Technicians responsible for maintaining and repairing Wayfarer 2 ticket machines and the associted modules and depot readers. Each garage was visited weekly. Repairs were done at garages wherever possible and equipment only taken away for repair when absolutely necessary. ONLY equipment owned by London Buses Ltd. was maintained by this team. Machines owned by LRT (includes Westlink, Suttonbus, Roundabout etc.) were dealt with differently. Gibsons were maintained by BEL at Chiswick and later Willesden after Chiswick closed. This information was found in documents at TfL Corporate Archives.||Mon 06/11/2017, 23:22|
|Ray||This was set up when Effra Road closed down and the overhaul of Gibsons was being run down. The base was a unit in Beadman Street, which led into Ernest Avenue, and was opposite the new Norwood Garage (N). Electronic machines eventually killed off the need for ticket machine works ||Fri 27/07/2007, 15:52|
