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.
