I saw this in another forum I belong to. Even though we're in the USA, these items can make their way across the ocean via E-Bay and other avenues. So keep your eyes open for any of the items mentioned in the article here.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL WITH AN INTEREST IN RAILWAY HISTORY

At some time in the latter part of the week ending 18 December the was a burglary at the ARHS Vic Div Inc Railway Museum in North Williamstown. Entry was forced into the signal box and the following items were stolen:

* Two Block Instruments
* Two Lamps
* Two Staff Exchange Boxes
* One Staff Instrument Bell



This is a sad thing to happen to any organization.

Thanks,

John
