There is also the Swedish Ericsson UAC1610 and its successor the APN586,
16-bit computers used in telephone exchanges, management systems for
telephone exchanges and also in railway interlockings. There are about
140 of these interlockings in use in Sweden at the moment; due to
problems with obtaining some components the manufacturer does not
provide spare parts any longer so they are being replaced over a period
of some 20 years or so. I have tried to find documentation on the
Internet but it seems extremely hard to find, if it exists at all
outside of the manufacturer.
