    Re the "momentous announcement", maybe a date for a getting the chassis over the Bridgnorth wheel-drop and putting the chassis on the 6 driving wheels?

    I do wonder if lack of covered accommodation is becoming an issue though?

    When that ‘momentous announcement’ comes, we better grab our popcorn, because it is going to be exciting!

    I wouldn't call that a momentous announcement, that occurrence is something which is inevitably going to happen as the build progresses. No, I think something is going to change which will take us all by surprise.

    Like ripping the tanks, bunker & rear truck off and bunging a tender behind it?

    Perhaps we should just exercise some patience.....

    I did, Dave. The MPD did a spoof donkeys' years ago and stuck a big key in the hole. I'm sure there was a photo in the Magazine. Damn! Didn't read the above before I hit the keyboard:Banghead:

    Thank you Gav, I was about to post the same image myself.

    It was an excellent day and we could not have wished for a better operation. Thanks to all concerned.

    Thanks too to all our supporters for their good wishes,

    :)
