    Great news, I am not sure how many locomotives the museum will be able to hold or if there will be a York style turntable inside.

    The article is a bit misleading, they have been awarded £494,000 to help with the application. Most of this will be spent on things like getting outside consults, planning applications and various other things to do with the bidding. All this means is the Heritage Lottery believes the application is serious and is inviting them to apply for stage 2.... the Great Central has a long way, a lot of late nights and nail biting to go before they discover if they been successful.
