Pendon model railway https://www.pendonmuseum.com/ I am sure lots of the forum are interested in model railways, this one is super and air conditioned (just right for today! 28C in the shade). There is also a radio aerial on one of the 1930's houses...

I can't recall how many decades ago it was when I visited it, but it was certainly before I moved to Cumbria nearly thirty years ago.

The Battle of Britain Bunker, went there this afternoon and had a private tour of the interesting bits (been on the 'normal tour' before)

Some pics, lots of stairs (pedantically lots of steps, 76 in all, only five stairs I suppose), electrics, the plotting table and air handling

Default Vintage gear in Feldkirch Austria

Hi Gents, just visited the old and interesting town of Feldkirch near the Bodensee and close to Germany and Switzerland.
They have an old (1908) hydro power station in the middle of the town.
5 sets in all probably running at less than 1MW total.
I didn't ask for a tour, but I suspect it is possible. The present gear looks 50's or 60's.

There was also a vintage radio museum in the town that I posted about a few years ago, but I couldn't locate it this time, possibly the owner has retired.

Hi Gents, also of interest in this area is the Ill Werke hydro scheme in the Montafon valley. A good museum with all the details is located at Latchau near Golm and also in some other places.
This system is both direct Hydo as well as an impressive and increasing amount of pumped storage. Well worth a visit.
