Having two museums leaves the vexing question of do you have mirroredthemes in both, or completely different themes in each ? That is,should all the, say, transport exhibits be at one location, or splitup between the two?----- Original Message -----From:TramsDownUnder@...To:

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’ atCastle Hill and these can only be seen on rare occasions.
The Powerhouse building at Ultimo is a priceless exhibit itself as itwas 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 firstfloor (up). It must have been a job getting them up there and aheadache if they want to take them away.
