I would (although not yet a WMF-GB member) be delighted to chase up Chamber's Street Museum in Edinburgh to do a day. I got dragged round there from around age 8 (32 years ago) by my grandfather. He was a teacher and ex-mining engineer from WWII. At that thime they had a lot of hand-made (but look like Hornby) models of engineering work. I would be most interested in knowing if they still have them hidden away somewhere. As a kid I loved going round and pushing all the buttons to make things like bridges raise and mineheads run. Those would make great little video clips for commons if I can borrow some sort of decent vid-cam. -- Brian McNeil <brian.mcn...@wikinewsie.org> http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Brian_McNeil Content of this message in no way represents the opinions or official position of the Wikimedia Foundation or any of its projects.
