Classic Wings, Issue 61, 2007 notes:
"CLOSURE OF PUBLIC ACCESS: For several years, it was possible for members of the public to visit the workshop and view the active restoration work along with some of the as yet unrestored machines suitably displayed in dioramas etc. This was well managed by a team of volunteers however whilst this program did provide some positive benefits, it was decided after some deliberation that the interruption to work flow caused by the visitors wanting to speak with restoration staff took too high a toll on productivity. Additionally, erroneous and misleading information started appearing on some of the less reliable websites so the policy of easy access was terminated and the doors were reluctantly closed to visitors in 2006."
