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....!

If it were up to me, and I know it's not, 33 035.  I have a picture from Rail magazine of 33035 on nuclear flasks at Dungeoness.  Painted in Toothpaste with Eastleigh shed plates and the name plate Spitfire. 

I also have the old Lima 33035 that I enhanced with handrails and etched plates in the display cabinet quite near the two 1/48  Battle of Britain Spitfires and the Two Seafires....

So are you all set for the party of pensioners to visit?
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

When I came back into Model railways I seriously looked at 5 or 7.5 inch gauge, but the price frightened me off. Instead I've slowly been building an extention to the shed, Ie a wall, on which will run a loop of  EM gauge track so the railway can enjoy the sunshine.

I think my jungle would have been i better condition if I had built the ride on railway..

Yellow and black tools, that will be black and decker in drag then... :D


yes please keep showing your railway...

Thank you very much everyone.  :)

I'm currently building a signal box for the railway, based on the original one that was at Kenley.  Photo's seem to be none existant, so I've had to use my Victorian era postcards to get it as close as I can (although I have had to buy some dolls house sash windows which are a little smaller than I'd like).

The signal box does have a use, other than looking pretty!  It operates the signals!  I know, you're all shocked at that!!!   :D  It will operate the two 12v signals, include a 240v socket (handy for the lawn mower) and a 24v charger for the loco to charge from.

It's almost complete.  I've just this minute stuck down some vinyl flooring in the upper floor.  It's been a much bigger project than I imagined!   :uneasy: ;D

They've redesigned the whole range since the B&D days.  You must be one of those horrible Makita fans?!   :P :D

Go steady now - you might find Bealman living there if you make it too luxurious :uneasy:

Id recommend you consider underfloor heating if its not too late. It really does make a difference :D

I still have a couple of  20 years Black and yellows, just about still working, But yes these days, now I have a little more money, if it's a power tool thats going to get used a lot it would be Makita.

Last Time I opened a battery pack on a DW to change sme cells, all the batteries inside were labled B&D

B&D are loooong gone...the new XR range has been completely reengineered.  And DeWalt have the best batteries in the industry, especially with their Flexvolt range.  Each to their own though, I understand that.  :)
