All these memories will be lost in time....

We were lucky in the UK with steam locomotives because a lot of them 
ended up rotting gently in scrap yards for long enough for them to be 
recoverable by restoration groups.

About fifteen years ago I was working on the defuelling of the Calder 
Hall nuclear reactors which started up in 1956. There was some very 
creative engineering in the fuel handling and reactor control systems, 
but no interest in saving any of the hardware. Soon, all that is left 
will be photographs.
