This switch may be operated either by means of a screw driver or a coin. Fig. 13 shows the two types of pack provided. The pack at the left of the illustration is a trunk pack.  ...  The design of the line and trunk packs also provides ease of mainte- nance in that a defective pack may be removed from the front of the switchboard without disturbing adjacent line and trunk packs.  ...
