Gill Selectors

The attached 1911 United States Electric Company Bulletin 401 states that
the N&W and VGN used Gill Selectors.  These were units connected to a
ringer for a dispatcher to call a particular office to speak on the
dispatcher's telephone circuit.  Selectors may have been used on the N&W
Message Line, with an telephone operator at Roanoke to ring an office.  I
don't think Gill Selectors were compatible with Western Electric Selectors,
so my question is: was Gill used exclusively on the N&W?  Or, were they
later replaced by Western Electric Selectors?

Good evening,
