There is discussion on the https://national-preservation.com/threads/60007-4498-sir-nigel-gresley-overhaul.678201/ thread about the NRM's intention to convert their workshop into a "kids' playground" and to build a new workshop. Some further discussion of that seems worthwhile but surely belongs in this section, hence this new thread. We know very little so far about the proposed new workshop. It could be anything from a small facility for minor repairs or construction of bits and pieces for the Museum to a bigger and better version of the present workshop. Nor do we know whether visitors will be able to see the work being done there. Nor do we know which of the present machinery will be moved to the new workshop or left in the old one as static exhibits. So this could be a good development or a very bad one, though I fear the latter.
