    Could they be relays for some sort of electrical system? No idea at all.

    thanks
    Might be an old 3 phase supply, with routeing boxes for each phase.
    Looks a bit dodgy though!

    There is no relays inside .Basically it has terminal blocks for phone cable.
    Maybe its part of the tele-breifing system ?
    Really puzzling me now ..

    hi there

    three phase power supply is doubtful cables would be of the same size left hand one looks like a comms flex or even a 13 amp cable.

    binbrook what building is it on ?

    could be traffic light control signals cable does not look like airfield lighting cable
    so would suggest comms of some sort

    cheers

    It was just lent up a building as it looks like it was removed from somewhere else.
    It has kinda gpo cable inside so i wonder if it was something to do with runway caravans ?
    Definately has no mains supply running into it only small thin multi core cable like gpo cable.
    Cant actually see any terminations out as all hard wired inside and no external points on it.
    All it has on it in painted letters is well it looks like no7 .
    Puzzled me .

    hi binbrook
    soon as you said gpo cables i think it may have been local phone connection between buildings
    some of the b centres at abingdon had an amplifier still in them may be also station tanoy system found some buildings with that in as well.

    It could be GPO cables,

    Or, the general airfield cable used for carrying things such as obstruction lights switching signals and station PA.

    It could be, not saying it IS. If it's been removed from a building, it may have been connected all through together, as usually the airfield cable used for direct wire traffic lighs and lighting telemetry AND general sation use would be in a nice large cabinet, unless of course removed and connected through.
