Museum visitor numbers soar

The 2010 season has seen visitor numbers soar dramatically at the British Commercial Vehicle Museum in Leyland, Lancashire.  Its recent 'Great British Lorries Day' was so successful that the Museum will make it an annual event.  "Tourist Group Bookings and private functions for road transport industry related bodies are also up," said Rick Roberton, speaking for the museum.  "We've also a stunning new diesel engine development display, starting with a full-size, three-metre tall replica of Rudolf diesel's first engine and continues to the present day.  It ran on peanut oil, by the way."  The BBC recently based on of its one-hour 'Behind the Scenes' programmes on the museum, boosting visitor numbers even more.
