Strewth! 11 pictures and no sign of a De Walt :o :D
Hope those plastic gears are better than Farish ones, Chris.

:D  I must try harder!!!

It's a pity that I never finished the 5" gauge loco that I was building with my father 35 years ago, as I have this half a mile away:

A bit far for me to travel.....!  :D

Im liking the 33, will it be toothpasted? ^.^


Correct! :thumbsup:  So either 33 114 or 33 035.  I'm torn on which one. :-\  I really like 035 because of owning the Farish model for years, but I like 114 with the pipes on the cab ends....!

Newport Nobby.  I think that the sponsership money for all the advertising of the De Walt tools has come to an end thats why none in the photos.
If your going to start using a diferent make Tank can I please have all the redundant De Walt tools
.Perhaps Makita will pay you more if you ask them.
Dont forget the new cards for me to hand out at shows Tank see you at Redhill on Saturday.

A video that I took just now on my garden railway - Kenley Light Railway.  The camera makes it look a lot bumpier than it is.  Apologies that I feature in it!  :D

It's actually there for a good reason and I only planted the seeds four weeks ago.....  My boys bring their bikes through there and the ballast was being dragged across the lawn.  This will stop that and also tone down the 'dominating' Railway in the garden!!!

Hi Tank,

Great stuff.

 Just showed the vid clip to the wife and suggested us building one. I got a look but not an outright NO.

Maybe one day.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Don't apologise Chris - you haven't exceeded the loading gauge  :)

Best regards,


Joe

Good luck Weave.  I had the same issue.  I bought some track to test a wagon that I'd accidentally bought....!  Once my boys were whizzing along with big smiles my wife couldn't stop me!  LOL

Thanks Joe, I think I just about pass!  :D

Top stuff mate

I have no idea how many / much Radley merchandise that would cost me, but would be worth it!

Should say however, I wouldn't be able to resist a 5 inch gauge "Ivor".

I think I could pursuade new wifey that every house needs lots of pet Gronks...

This is brilliant! Thanks for the video. The army wagons are cool. Stupid question, as I know nothing about these things, I assume it has some sort of brakes? How do they work, are they remote control too?
