Thanks Steve, it is a challenge to take photos there as it is so dark even in the daytime and like you say you don't get much time to appreciate the station fully during busy events such as STIA. _________________ My Website: http://swiftfoxsteamco.webs.com/
What makes me sad is that I could spend all day in a place like this, but my family would be bored and complaining as we walked in through the door.
Why not drop them off at the Space Centre next door? I know it costs an arm and a leg to get in but I'm told it's quite entertaining and would occupy them for at least an hour while you enjoyed the real thing.
Thanks for the great photos Philip. If I ever get back to England for a visit again, I will tour APS...what a grand thing it is! _________________ Visit IndianaRog and The Temple of Steam: www.indianarog.com

It would be nice to give you a tour round if you do visit over here sometime Rog.
I've currently been working with the beam engine gang in the evenings helping clean up the tops of the cylinders on No3 engine. I also found some Autosol so i'm planning to redo all the brasswork i did previously as i find it works better than Brasso for some bits. _________________ My Website: http://swiftfoxsteamco.webs.com/
