Gday all,
Just received a call from my old man to say that the Lake Goldsmith steam rally site has been flooded out, the sheds down the bottom end, beleive it or not, have been in over 2m's of water. Theres been a lot of damage obviously with many engines/ tractors/litrature. There is a working bee on this coming sunday (23rd) which a few of us are attending, hopefully there's alot that can be saved.
Check out the video on you tube "Lake goldsmith Flood 14 January"
Regards,
Slim

Maybe too late by the weekend but just in case if there's any manuals or photos that are waterlogged that may be saved or at least stanbilised for copying, this info might help www.hcvc.com.au/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1295254170

and for cars, tractors and engines there's....
