Gathering dust....

Taken 5/7/2013 at the NRM York.

There seems to be no idea what to do with Scotsman at the NRM she appears to be simply gathering dust.
One guide was over heard to say " if someone comes forward with the money she might get back to steam".
The NRM has no money and is threatened with closure.
Close the NRM? It's unthinkable of course isn't it?
1472 - 4472 - 502 - 103 - 60103 call her what you will she ain't goin nowhere soon......

It's a pity it can't sing or dance (on its toes) John, then it might be considered for a monetary grant. Is it not an art form in preservation, well it is in my eyes.
