    How could you not, that much potential for break downs , oil leaks and the odd car bursting into flames:eek:o_O
    The hysterical owners and associated wives will be hilarious:D

    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.

    Shame on you mate .
    The other good point about having it there is that its next to Eastlink which most people will travel on and all breakdowns can be towed quickly off the road to the site for no extra cost :cool:

    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.
