Thanks to all for helping me out with this, I can't wait to get home to =

I drove past it several times when I was attending a course at Woodward Governor
a couple of years ago. A giddy piece of engineering by anyone's standards.
Unfortunately it was always outside opening times when I was free of commitments
and in any case I suspect it was closed for renovation at the time, it was
certainly shrouded in scaffolding and tarp's.
A huge pity, imho, that it couldn't be restored to run on steam but it's easy to
say that when I didn't have to find the geld to do it.
