    You weren't kidding when you said "a short distance". No disrespect intended, of course. I realise these things have to be done cautiously and incrementally.

    Good to see her back in action. Anyone know what's next? I see this report here.

    It's an unfortunate setback, but after all the work that's gone into it, I'm sure it will eventually get there. It's a credit to the restoring group that they've got the machine this far considering it hasn't been powered up since 2001.

    Richard.
