The one in the picture is at Swindon railway works. I think there were others.

There was another at Rugby. I don't know about any others. I think it was the V2 at Swindon that went into the control cabin

I went to that page but after saying that you'd be registered automatically if this was your first visit it then said 'sorry, no one registered with those details' .
So I mutterred a word of... of...er something or other and came away from the untested page.
The Hornby one that John mentioned is no longer produced.
Jim.

Yes, thanks for the info John. Yes I fit that category well . It looks as if I might need something to take the sawdust away from my breathing gear, what would you suggest? It is for the same category of user. I have seen the youtuber that made one to which he fitted a vacuum cleaner but I am more interested in saving time. I'd rather have a shop-vac or similar. Something that would multi-task. Use it to take away saw dust, paint over spray etc..... as well as clean up the floor now and again - but not too frequently .

My thinking too Jim.

Are we not on the wrong thread here?

Jim, hi, the Hornby one, is still available, but not from Hornby Shop. Other dealers have them, and RAF, on here, is selling extra rollers. Bought mine from ebay. On question of your saw, you need Ear defenders. I also use paper masks, which will do for spraying, as well. Will come back to you on vacuum. john
