Remember the small caravan? It's become too small for the growing team of volunteers and it has been decided to let it go to the great caravan park in the sky! However, I have secured a stay of execution and the Wednesdayites have stripped out the interior so that it can be used as a temporary paint shop. We have some small items that have been living out in the open that require preparation and painting. This has been almost impossible because of late they have been permanently wet! Or covered in snow etc etc. They can now be brought 'indoors' and given their treatment before returning to their positions nicely painted.

The re-railers and small scales are the first to use the new paint shop

Enough room for more items such as the planters



The small van should be gone before we open. Ideas for disposal?
Give it to the army for target practice?
Any other ideas please feel free.

My idea would be to remove all of the outer bodywork entirely, and woodwork inside right down to chassis level, leaving the floor intact on the chassis, we could then use the caravan chassis as a versatile trailer capable of moving large, heavy items around the site by any vehicle with a tow bar. No doubt if necassary we could get the electrics up and running easily which would give us an on road trailer too.

It makes sense Brian and the thought had crossed my mind. The problem is I think, storing it on site. It would take up the same amount of room as now and be only slightly less of an eyesore. What do others think, especially board members?
