Whilst I would love to see Bluebird run again on Consiton, would seem to properly complete the loop somehow. But ultimately it's about putting on the best spectacle possible before she spends her days in a museum. Wherever this as long as it is open and visible to as many that want to see then it's all good as far as I am concerned.

Interestingly when I looked at

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Las ... 15.1398296

I see that the Americans call their premier lake facility for the area the 'National Recreation Area'. Perhaps that is a title and goal the UK government should consider moving the ldnpa towards....as opposed to the 'lake district not permitted area'

One day they'll work out that if we get her out regularly and keep her live and in the forefront of the public's minds this will only benefit the museum and the local community in general while we do all the work. It's a no-brainer. That people are so blind to the bigger picture is an endless source of frustration to me!
