sorry to put the moccas on what you have done, but all exchanges are digital and dial phones are not, can take out exchange electronics, so you might get a knock on your door.

Can you hook up german field telephones in this way, the ones with the wind up ringer generator or is that impossible? Lovely kit by the way love the way you have wired in the cigarettes into the kit!
