Hello,

I just came across this thread and its very interesting indeed! I have pondered over a Middle Eastern/North Africa railway for some time but never got round to doing it so I love the idea!

It is also the first time I have seen an N gauge S160, very impressive as is the S200!

I am in the process of designing an S160 with the intention of 3D printing it for my preserved line:)

Cheers,

Alex

Hi Alex,

I know i haven't posted anything on here for a while, but i haven't stopped. Just had to pack everything up and move home. I've been merely watching everything very quietly.

The S.160 started off life as an Atlas 0-8-0. When i bought it, it was obvious that it had been dropped and had no front end. So this i thought was a perfect opportunity for me to purchase it and i got it for a bargain price and make something that resembled an S.160. I'm happy with it and i can stick some more pictures of it up if you like?

I did read your post about your project, i think it is a fantastic idea, the S.160 has so many different variations and was used all over the world. Perhaps you could make a modified variant for people who model the USA or Asia?
Many worked in the UK before being shipped over to Europe after D-Day and i know one stayed at Longmoor after the war.

Regards

Rob.

Oooh, :hmmm: I have an hankering to model Longmoor one distant day.

Hello,

Thanks for getting back to me! I would love to see some more photos of the S160 if you could post them! It would really help on the development side of things I think!

Cheers,

Alex

Sorry to rivet count but those camels have two many humps, the arabian / Egyption camel should have one. I saw Many in Saudi, though they travel in the back of pick up trucks these days...

I love the S160 I think I'll attempt one myself, I'm still looking for one for EM gauge as well...

Yes thank you. I did know about the camel humps when I bought them. I did find a picture once of camels all laded into a wagon, there was about five or six all squeezed in a similar wagon and all made to face one side.
So my camels are quite lucky that they can move around a bit.
Then again, try and find camels in n gauge?
I may try another one at some point, Pendraken Miniatures do white metal ones witch are geared up for a walk. Tempting.

And I'm sorry I haven't put up more pictures, it all seems to have been changed and made so much more complicated and a poor autistic person like myself can't handle such complexities.
