GAINSBOROUGH’S Heritage Association played host to a very special guest who had a very keen interest in the town’s industrial history.
Mr Tonu Ojamaa, who owns a derelict Marshall Steam Engine back home in Yallin in Estonia, visited Gainsborough’s Heriate Centre recently to look at the collection of Marshall drawings to help him renovate his 1926 Marshall Light Traction Engine.
“The Heritage Association regularly receive requests for drawings from around the world by people who are restoring Marshall Steam Engines,” a spokesman said. “Requests have come from as far away as Australia.”
You can now find the association on Facebook.
