Work on refurbishment has commenced! The interior display has been removed. Vehicle exhibits safely stored, with several now being on show in the Leyland Trucks factory assembly hall (see photographs below).
PLEASE NOTE that viewing this display is restricted to trade delegations visiting the Leyland Trucks Ltd factory, and is NOT available for public viewing.
Scaffolding to the exterior is in place and removal of the existing roof is now under way. The new roof and insulation should be in place in early springtime upon which a brand new display encompassing latest information display systems (together with historic vehicles) will be constructed. The end result will be a brand new museum, providing an exhilarating experience for visitors from ALL age groups.
In recognition of the huge amount of work carried out by our many volunteers, a visit to the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry was made just before Christmas. A buffet in the museum’s Bistro ‘went down well’ !
