|MODELING THE EGYPTIAN LOCOMOTIVES|
|This page was created to show some of the Egyptian locomotive models that I have built several years ago to cast some light on a few of the Egyptian trains that I witnessed as a child running north and south across Egypt from the mid-fifties till the late ninties. Egypt was the second nation in the world after England to run train services around 1853.
This page is dedicated to the ENR ( Egyptian National Railways ) , one of the pioneers in the railway services .
Some of the models shown on this page were modified from GM locomotive plastic kits and some others were built from styrene and metal train accessories. Prototypes of the models are pictured in many web sites ( Special thanks to Mr. Larry Russell and his wonderfull GM Export page that made it possible to build those model locomotives. ) . Some of similar models as well as real locomotives are exhibited at the Egypatian Rail Museum in Cairo.
