TT2 is a the first transfer line built at CERN to transfer particles from the historical Proton Synchrotron to storage rings and other accelerators such as the now redundant ISR tunnel, the Antiproton decelerator, the Super Proton Synchrotron. Since 1959, the TT2 has been delivering beams with great reliability and performance. Electronics in the line have been upgraded but the core equipment has been operational for almost 45 year reaching a record lifetime. The TT2 programme aims to consolidate the operation and guarantee the line performance in the new era of physics experiments.
