Yesterday afternoon the museum hosted the DCC South Dunedin Retail Centre Strategy – Issues and Opportunities Consultation meeting. Council staff, along with many councillors met members of the South Dunedin community to gain and promote ideas and wish lists for the South Dunedin retail centre. Members of the museum trust were also on hand to promote our activities. Several of the steam engines were operating.
Open day yesterday, and we ran some tests on the boiler feed-pump motor. This allowed us to steam up – not a usual Tuesday event.
DCC consultation project organiser Emma O’Neil and assistant Rowan visited this afternoon to plan for the “DCC South Dunedin Retail Centre Strategy – Issues and Opportunities Consultation” open day event, to be held at the museum on Wednesday 12 May.
Our contract inspector checked out the traction engine for its annual boiler certification.
