    This place was a great little find. Not much remains of Swindons once massive rail industry so it was great to find a bit of the vintage industry still lurking! The main shed had been used as a gokart track and is now a bit of a store for a building company working nearby. I belive the chain testing equipment will be preserved when the building is converted..

    We only checked this place out as a time killer, we didnt think there would be much in there..!! :eek:
