Here’s a digest of what we’re up to over the summer -well in June and July at any rate. We hope some of you can make some of it.
The image you can see on the left is the new railway flap sign we have built to display our work BEACON. It’s a development shot taken in the factory at Solari of Udine in Italy when we visited during April.
