Question Repairing broken wires

I have a bundle of 11 red wires that have been cut. How many possibilities are there getting them back together? Not a joke.

Only 1 correct possibility and too many wrong ones to consider.

Combinations

How many possibilities are there getting them back together?
11 x 10 x 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 = 19,958,400 combinations. As has been previously stated, only one is correct.

This is from an old telephone switching machine with step relays. I would like to see it in action.

you might try the folks at Classic Rotary Phones Forum, some of them have reconnected telephone switch board equipment and there is a board just for telephone switching equipment

How would the telephone Co help. It's the same for them as me. I think I'm going to see if I can't the motor to work. Don't care if it switches, or not.
Looks something like this.

Step by step switching was awesome to watch in real life. It's just about extinct now.

Its not the phone company, its a forum of collectors of classic telephone equipment, including telephone switching machinery with step relays, if you know the brand and model they may even have some schematics on how to connect it correctly. I have used it in the past to get schematic on connecting early telephones to subsets for daily use. It has lots of information on all major manufactures of telephone equipment.
