The museum workshop area has recently been improved by the concreting of the remainder of the floor. This has meant a reorganisation of the area and allows for an extra four bays for restoration works etc.
New equipment is being utilised to assist members while they work, including a new sandblasting outfit supplied with air from an 18 cubic foot compressor. The four-post hoist, which had posed a problem in the past because of its size, will be set up in an area with a raised roof. This area formerly housed the Connor Shea header.
A new washbasin with hot water is now underway, and will be an added benefit for members.
