1964 Remington Travel-Riter Deluxe Serial # GR940323 1964 Remington Travel-Riter Deluxe typewriter, Serial # GR940323 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1964 Remington Travel-Riter Deluxe typewriter. 2015-02-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1964 Remington Travel-Riter Deluxe Serial # GR940323 After several bad experiences with crippled typewriters (which will come to the database when they┬┤re repaired), this little and strong machine has given me quite a nice time. And I managed to get it at a decent price considering it┬┤s like new!

This one hasn┬┤t come to make any friends. Looks quite brutal, with those ultra-defined lines. No-nonsense, everything in place. And the typing is excatly what you would expect: perfectly accurate and blindingly fast. Reminds me a lot of the Torpedo 18b (see links), both in the looks (the keys, which have the same shape) and in the general feel. Maybe this confirms the relationship between Remington and Torpedo?

A great portable, a true winner.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
