The Steaming Ahead project will help preserve intangible heritage related to the maintenance and running of steam locomotives. Building a modern, fit-for-purpose steam shed will allow new training programmes for volunteers and apprentices. The project also involved improving public accessibility to the entire site, upgrading interpretive signage and installing a small exhibition on a viewing gallery in the new steam shed. I facilitated workshops with staff and volunteers and collaborated with a specialist interactive company to develop an engaging, hands-on way to explain how steam locomotives work. My Interpretation and Signage Plan helped secure funding from NHLF.
