Although this is not an eyewitness account, I can report that the Oliver Cromwell launch last Saturday went well. There were representatives of the Great and the Good in attendance, plus 5305 LA were well represented. For a list of VIP attendees and a blow by blow account I suggest that a visit to the GCRs website would provide an official report.
I have it on good authority that the running in process is well underway, and the team are steadily finding and curing all manner of minor matters. But just because the engine is now launched doesn't mean that everyone can sit back and relax - work on the electronics and other matters for the 70013 to go on the Main Line is still underway. I guess that it's easier to run cabling when the engine isn't covered in wet paint - but it's probably now a question of catching her standing still!
