A section of the Museum has been cordoned off while MOTAT prepares the K Class Locomotive, K900 for relocation. We have received expert advice that potentially hazardous asbestos in K900 could become exposed over time. To avoid this risk, we are moving the locomotive under the guidance of Golder Associates and Alpha Demolition, to our workshop where it can be thoroughly cleaned, decontaminated and preserved. The cordon is in place to ensure visitors remain at a safe distance from the work-site. For further details click here.
It's bubbles galore at this special event for our youngest visitors!
