They should see if they can fire up the big steam shovel for the day .
And have a old Jap 4x4 crushing session for lunchtime entertainment :)
They did think about it.
But when they did a risk assessment they noted with so much leaking oil around it could be a great fire risk.....

Sorry i had edited my post i forgot to add the "happy" face stuff.

Railway enthusiasts and old Land Rover enthusiasts huh?

Lock away the children.:eek:
They have some good working stuff in there.
Great place to hold a event . I dunno what they got planned but I would hope they would open some of the sheds and crank up the o'l steam engines.
All British Made as well :) note the Buckets and Driptrays & Oil on the Floor.

My old man used to work as a pattern maker/engineer at Crossley's! That was when they ran out of money (1960's- not his fault, so he told me!) and we ended up over in Oz. Thanks for kicking some of the old neurons into gear.
