Phone of the Day: Avaya 1408/1608 Telephone at Chicago Union Station 

Today’s phone comes to you from the Great Hall in Chicago’s Union Station.  I can’t tell if this is a digital or IP telephone so it could either be the 1408 digital or the 1608 IP set. It appears Amtrak staff members unplug the handset when the kiosk is not staffed.  

These phones must be replacing the Nortel Meridian Digital Centrex M5000 sets that were in place at Union Station for the police and Amtrak back of house.
