While I would love to go, at this stage I don't think the exhibition gods are smiling on me. I hope you enjoy it though!

Now don't all hang back : is anyone else planning to be in Williamstown on the 22nd ?

Madam Fate , his guide in all things , and the Professor plan to visit the clothing exhibition in Williamstown on the 22nd.of April , the last day .
Should anyone else attend we will be the couple being refused admission because we are dressed in the same style as the exhibits .
Please make yourselves known .

Splendid stuff, Mr Roger Curl. Next time I'm in Auckland I MUST ensure I get there for a steaming load of fun.

Yes, good old MOTAT! I've been a volunteer at the Rail Section for some 5 years now. Most people who come through the gates say they haven't been there for years and are impressed by how much it has improved. Hope to see you there some time. I've seen a lot of changes at the Rail Section. We seem to be making progress slowly. We have 3 locos in steam and another one should be ready soon-ish, like 5 years ago!

Ah, good old MOTAT. Love that place, even though I have not been through its doors for some 25 years.

(I actually worked there briefly, in 1980, but sadly not in the capacity I would have preferred.)

Greetings one and all. Don't miss Aether & Iron at MOTAT, Auckland's Museum of Transport and Technology on Saturday 28th April 2012. Planning is still under way, but his year's event promises to be bigger, brighter and better. Go to
