That is one of the more impressive examples to still be seen in it's more or less original state.

I am pleased to see the preservation in place with a view to the long term future, these were, then as now, very expensive to manufacture and do not deserve to be subject to the unwelcome attentions of mother nature.

There are a few colours hanging free, but older ones are in a protected display. Never seen this anywhere else, but well done to whoever thought of it.
