Thanks Isabelle. :) I assume John Brown's had their own specialist model makers section? Or was the work contracted out?

That is sad. Lots of days of 40+ degree heat will no doubt have caused havoc.

Removing it isn't easy, however, and involves removing all the handrails for the nearby stairs.

Is it in its original position or has it been moved to the consolidation area

I would think it would still be in it's display case in my opinion.

I read on another site that all of the artifacts had been moved to a safe consolidation area
