Switch Type:
Genband/Nortel RSC

Prefixes Served:
(660) 248

Notes:
This CO located in central Missouri. It houses an RSC hosted by the Kirksville DMS100. This is one of those offices which demonstrates the dramatic change in Southwestern Bell from the 1920s to the 1970s. The original office is on the right and it looks very much like a bank or library building. It had a business office in front and a switch room in the back. When the old step by step switch got replaced in the 1970s it was installed in the large building addition to the left of the original office. The only effort to keep the addition consistent with the original building is the windows.

KKVLMOMODS0

Switch Type:
Genband/Nortel DMS-100/200

Prefixes Served:
(660) 626-7, 665, 785

Notes:
Kirksville houses a Nortel DMS100 switch which hosts many remotes spread over a large area. I was surprised when I saw these pictures after I had taken them because in one it appears that the radio tower is behind the building in one and in the center of the building in the other. The tower is actually built about 3 feet from the edges at the rear left corner of the building as seen in Photo 1.

The remotes it hosts are Lancaster, Downing, Edina, Higbee, Armstrong, Fayette, New Franklin, Boonville and Glasgow.

It houses an AXE10 switch. The large business office window on the right side of the building front was bricked up years ago but you can still discern the brick is of a different shade.

Note: The switch in this central office is expected to be replaced with a new switch (Genband G5 packet remote) in February 2013. CLLI code will change to KNNSMOLORPA.

Alcatel/Lucent 5ESS

Prefixes Served:
(660) 263, 269, 372

Notes:
Moberly is a toll collection office and this picture clearly shows the progression of building additions over the life of the office. It started out with the small dark brick portion on the right. That was roughly doubled by the addition of the lighter brick bays to the right and a new roof line. Finally came the huge toll addition and the radio tower in the 1960s.

Notes:
It is believed that the former EXchange name here was TAylor. This office sits in downtown Sedalia where the annual Missouri state fair is held. Notice the closeup of the the old Southwestern Bell chiseled into the fašade of the building. This photo was taken when the inter-company mail truck was there for a delivery. The fašade was applied to the building before the addition was built.

Listing Updated:
August 2013

Operating Company:
at&t/SBC/Southwestern Bell

CLLI:
STNBMOSURS0

Switch Type:
Genband/Nortel RSC

Prefixes Served:
(660) 783

Notes:
It is home to a DMS remote hosted by the St. Joseph DMS100. There is not another AT&T wire center northwest of this one because they sold Marysville to CenturyLink several years ago. At the far left of the front view you can see the rear part of an AT&T 2 truck garage. This far north they get so much snow that it is necessary to garage the trucks.  The front view shows clearly the building addition 25 years ago to place the DMS Remote switch. You can see the clear line where the lighter blond brick starts.
