I few days ago a local school contacted me asking if I would be interested in buying their steam engine
As Health & Safety in schools ment they could no longer afford to boiler check their steam engine
So had decided to sell off some of their equipment to buy computer tablets for use in science lessons
A price was set by the school board, and I bought their steam engine, I paid far too much for it
But wanted to help out with their fund raising, it needs a bit of work, but what a shame that schools
Have to sell their science equipment for lack of funds   Sad
