Does anyone know the status of Botany Bay box, listed as preserved at Worksop? I would be interested in any interior shots of it either in preservation or still in use.

It was bought privately on closure. A call to Geoffrey Allison Models will be able to assist you with your enquiry....

The box is still in the garden of Keith Allison and is very much looked after. It is surrounded by other railwayana and a model railway runs through it. It is a great place to sit on a summers day and listen to the clock tick!
