Thanks Wendy. Straight in the index, new information for me. Any ideas about the larger Model?

One more thing to ponder about Central Garage. Was the roof and upper storey removed to relieve pressure on the north wall? If you look you'll see that it is buttressed. It has evidently developed a bulge at some point.

John, I noted that you had put this image in the gallery but no text to go with it. If you are having a problem working out how to post on the new site give a shout.
