Unfortunately there is, as yet, no NSE liveried version of the 33.  I would rather like 33035 - SPITFIRE with the Eastleigh Shed Plates.  It rummaged around Kent quite alot...  Wondering if Dapol will do further liveries in the future...

Interesting that the 33/1 will be the initial release ahead of the more numerous 33/0s. Does anyone know if the 33/1s strayed from the Bournemouth to Weymouth section and worked other trains? I am modeling West Dorset, so am particularly interested if these fellas were to be seen on the Salisbury to Exeter or Bristol to Weymouth lines. If not I guess I will be waiting for Dapol to release the 33/0...

Many thanks

Mike

I was pulled by 33/1's down to Exeter quite a few times although the 33/0's were more usual. As they were replaced by the 50/50's it seemed to me that there were more 33/1's stabled at Salisbury than the more numerous 33/0's. We hardly ever saw any slim jims on the western section of the southern.

I will be getting a blue yellow tops numbered version of the 33/0 when they become available, one of the best looking early diesels that made it through to the privatization era.

Saw 33104 at Crewe with a Cardiff-Crewe working in 1982 and it made it to York with a rake of Gatwick stock in 1984.
In the late 1980's, particularly after 1988 when the TC's sets were withdrawn they really got about. Seen them at Westbury, Exeter and Bristol. Had the coldest trip of my life from Exeter to Yeovil behind 101 in 1991!
By the 1990's 33119 and 109 seemed to get everywhere including a trip to Scotland in connection with the filming of some film. I worked for Res at the time and  they seemed to be at Crewe every other week for some charter or other.

Remember 33101 in grey working a Rugby special from Crewe to cardiff in 1993 but it conked at Newport.

Depending on how late you are modelling really as 116 really did get about and i had 33108 and 021 on a car train from Crewe to Southampton in 2001 to get them down there to act as Thunderbirds for the South West Desiro project!

Will be having a couple!

I would not hold your breath for an NSE version. Dapol have supported NSE in the past but both their 73 and 121 in this livery have been poor sellers. The 121 is the only livery of this model still available in the shops, 12 months after the green and blue versions sold out.

I like NSE (and modelled it in 00) but I have gone back in time for N gauge to the days when trains still said "chuff". ;)
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Farish did the Class 33 33035 - Spitfire in NSE livery (371-127) as I coincidentally picked one up secondhand at a show last week. Doesn't run too well at the moment but once I get the crowbar and hammer to it.............

Hi , EP moudlings on show at DEMU last weekend and v good. exhaust is an insert so early and late version possible. Good point is that the Farish 33 is narrow so a quick renumber as slim jim would work as it is a good likeness - less bogie lengths !
NSE has sadly been a poor seller but gives an available source for reliveries.
Even in 4mm often discounted well...

You never know, they might go on sale at TINGS (13-14 September) ...

Having seen the prototypes in blue since I was a kid and owned Farish 33s that had shorter than usual bogies, I'm looking forward to seeing a definitive 33 in N  :claphappy:

I knew I had a picture of a 33/1 at Newport in the mid 80s somewhere, I seem to remember them being uncommon, but not unknown on Portsmouth Harbour to Cardiff workings..  And here's the proof!, wish I could remember the date

My recent pre-order to Hattons included the Green no warning panels version - glad they've given up on trying to release D6597 as a Class 33/0...

Think you need to change your smiley as its reported elsewhere that the tooling has been scrapped and they're starting again.

Sounds like a possible repeat of the Heljan debacle in 4mm i.e. get a model 90% done and whilst doing the final 10% remove a load of correct detail and end up with a model that's awful.

Hi tooling error was to do with postion of exhaust - this a slide item for alternative versions so required slide moving -easier to get whole new tool made but since rest of data already held a "quick" change really just delay in getting tool making slot along with all the other work Dapol have shown as work in hand...   

Hopefully September is possible - I think the raft of delivery info relate to production slot allocation, given the common parts with 26/27 then quite a few parts could be on hand ready, not holding breath but it would be good for TINGS , just need a 4TC to hang on to 33/1...
