The Linotype Line
Circa 1960. The Comet, the Model 5 Meteor, the regular-width magazine Models 31, 32, 29, 30, and the wide-magazine "Rangemaster" Models 33, 34, 35, and 36. Also the Linofilm "cold-type" phototypesetting system.
Aside: This seems to be a good place to put The Linotype Line, since it covers the basic "Blue Streak" era lineup so well. It is, however, a later publication which also includes the Comet (introduced 1950) the rebranding of the Model 5 as the "Meteor," and the Linofilm system (not covered here at all).
Model 31 Newly Engineered

The Model 30 has auxiliary (side) magazines; the Model 29 has only main magazines. Note that a machine need not have all four possible main or side magazines installed. My Model 29, for example, has capacity for only two magazines installed.

Model 29 Linotype[:] Intricate Mixing at Keyboard Speeds . 129.06-F-TT-13X. This brochure includes both the Model 29 and the Model 30 Linotypes.
