Two years ago a move was made to get this web site up and running after a period of no webmaster to run it. Even the best intentions fall by the wayside as this has clearly done. It is anticipated that a new webmaster may be able to reinvigorate the site and keep it up to date the not to distant future.
The past two years has seen unprecedented improvements at the Museum. First up, the previous open area lunch room has been completely closed in, insulated and air conditioned This makes for a pleasant environmennt for members to relax in - something the previous are lacked.
The library has been doubled in size to accomodate the extensive collection of manauls and reference material. A mezanine floor has bean added above the library to provide storage space that otherwise took up display or amenity area
The workshop floor has been fully concreted, making for a vastly improved work area. Three phase power has also been installed in the workhop allowing for a larger compressor to be used for painting and sand blasting.
From the collection side of the museum there have been some noteworhy additions, namley an Acremaster tractor, and now the completed range of Chamberlain tractors and machinery as used in the wheat belt. Also donated have been an A84 header. a Massey baler, a 6G and 9G Chamberlain tractors - the latter to become the Museum's Yard tractor and loader, and many other items..
The actual display of tractors and machinery within the museum has had a transformation allowing for a much improved layout. While it is not yet finished the moves to date have been very positive thanks to the efforts of the Display Committee
