Here's a small gallery of shots from the Travelling Museum as it visited Central Park NYC in 1985. It's on my facebook page but should be accessible to all:

I'll post a few shots here:

The Logo-that was a great logo:



The museum was an 18 wheeler which expanded.



Ahhh, to be that thin again...

At that time, circa 1985-1986, there were 3 TV stations airing Doctor Who every week: NJN in NJ, WNYC in Manhattan, NY and WLIW in Long Island, NY. I lived right in the middle of it all and they announced it was coming and we made sure to be there. It was somewhat o a letdown being it was a trailer but the props and costumes were great. Life size K9 & Bessie. All that was missing was an actor or 2 to help promote it.

McCoy appeared at our stop in Illinois. He looked so tiny sitting at his table, and his episodes had yet to appear.

I don't even remember that! Did they come to the west coast at all, the San Francisco area specifically? Kermit's right: it ain't easy bein' green (with envy).
