WP 94 at RVJ question

Did damage to the boiler happen in 1985?

How bad is bad in terms of boiler work? (just money & 1472 or is it worse?)

If it was fixed, would the museum even be able to (or want to) run it (since everyone is gone) ?

I am not trying to beat a dead horse here. I want to better understand what went wrong with the boiler.

Thanks in advance,

Otis Denim
