Does anyone else recall these electronic masterpieces from the 1960's & into the 70's?
From memory, they were on the Piccadilly line & maybe the Central, might have been others. They were housed in wooden or plastic casing from memory & were not much smaller than the standing ticket machines in size.
You pushed the button bearing the legend of the destination station whence you were bound, and a series of wee light bulbs sparked into action and showed you exactly how to get there, regardless of whether you were bound for glory, the next station on the line, or the exotic delights of, say, Ruislip, Leytonstone or even Rickmansworth.
Almost as much fun as Gottelieb Pinball machines to play, as well, apart from being free and well useful!
Hope there's one preserved somewhere!
