Is this masterpiece of engineering not now on public display. It was awesome, when it was put into action. Such massive power.

Thank you Mick. Has is all now been dismantled Mick?. If so. It was of great historical history. I saw it working two, or three times in the seventies. The whole of the Orwell Centre was intriguing, especially the classroom.
