Unknown Tunes on Interchangeable Station Box
By Matthew Caulfield

What is a "Station Box" as applied to a musical box?  That is a new one
on me.  The term is not in Ord-Hume's "The Musical Box: A Guide For
Collectors," and a Google search of the term is no more enlightening.

 [ I found some occurrences in MMDigest by using the search window
 [ near the bottom of each MMD Archives web page.  "Station box" is
 [ the English equivalent of French "boîte à musique de gare" or "boîte
 [ de gare" which is a coin-operated music box typically seen at train
 [ stations in France and Switzerland 100 years ago.  -- Robbie
