A date with destiny ...

Oh, posting this is so tempting fate ... but I can't resist. On Monday, Jim rang RN and was told that they expect the engine to be ready to leave their works by Friday week ... albeit the new casting for the gearbox hasn't arrived yet, they are sure that it will not only have arrived, but will have been machined to fit the crankshaft in time to be put on Ian's trailer and hauled to Stretton the weekend after next ... and Keith assures us that there will be a cosy corner in some container where we will be able to paint it ... so now all I have to do is get onto Phil and order some more paint. Can it really be true?
