I don't think it is such a bad idea if there is to be another 'technology'
museum in Western Sydney.

There are a great many potential exhibits stored 'off site' at Castle Hill
and these can only be seen on rare occasions.

The Powerhouse building at Ultimo is a priceless exhibit itself as it was
the major power source for tramways in Sydney.

It sounds like the worst option - 2 sites miles apart to see it all.

I was there last year and from memory the old trains were on the first floor
(up). It must have been a job getting them up there and a headache if they
want to take them away.
