Good to hear from you again Jim. I posted the topic hoping to hear from and chat to some of the 315/615 Field engineers I and my colleagues trained in those early days. The london UK training operation originally started in 1962/63 at Borehamwood on the outskirts of London, Dr Reidle started the school and he was joined by  Dave Lewis, Dudley Lowe and then me. The school moved to Brent in North London about 1964 where it remained until 1971/72 before relocating to Dundee Scotland.

I only know one on your list.  I worked with Hubert Wudke in Hawthorne and/or Rancho Bernardo.  Haven't heard about him for a long time.  I taught some of the 615 classes at Hawthorne to some of the Field Engineering instructors.

My name is Terry Mozley and I was a 315 and 615 Instructor at Borehamwood and Brent. I then managed the transfer of the training facility to Dundee and continued to manage the training operation in Dundee for a while before leaving NCR  to manage the Computer Technology department of the Control Data Institute in London.  I would love to make contact and chat with engineers who I might have trained in those early days. The 12 years I spent with NCR were certainly the challenging and the most enjoyable of my career in the computer industry (I am now retired)

"Back in the day" I worked on the Software QA team in Wichita, Kansas for the IMOS, IMOS III, and IMOS V operating systems. All of them ran on the 82xx/9020 minicomputers. For retail systems, the same hardware also supported the TCOS OS, core of the STORES retail system, which had a "full-featured" back-end operating system.

As if that weren't enough, there was also the ICS retail-store scanning system, which was highly optimized to serve bar-code scanning retail terminals. ICS was capable of handling 15 scanners that scanned an aggregate of over 50,000 items per hour.

The NCR Corporation and Dayton History joined in an innovative partnership committed to preserving the NCR Archive.
This link provides lots of old photos from NCR and Dayton.

I do not have a photo of DC office but just wanted to let you know that the current issue of NCR_REA is now available on line to members. There is a aerial photo of the Dayton complex  that is new to me. I would guess about 1960 or 61.

I agree that the modules are from a compu tronic , The photo just posted is exactly as I remembered seeing them in Grand Rapids Mi when I was an apprentice.  Marv Kloote was the first CE trained on this machine.

Hi Marv, you are right. I found an old picture of the inside of a 441 at ITEC Giessen.
I was probably thinking of a 395 or 400. I found it in this PDF.

At least the module 3 from above seems to be from a 441.
