There are four types of Cubic ticket machine devices on stations. MFM, QBM, AFM and the new TVMs. There are of course gates operated by Cubic too. Each of these devices has a number, for example a Wide Gate (WAG) is often gate number 21 or 22, and a QBM is normally 18, 19, or some number in the 80-90 range. MFMs are normally device number 30, 31, 32 and 33. Please provide a list of the device number ranges and what they are assosiated with. E.g. devices 10 to 20 QBMs.
