|MODELING THE EGYPTIAN LOCOMOTIVES|
|JT22MC (Click on link to see the prototype) . One of the new locomotives to run
by the ENR (Egyptian National Railways) . A turbo charged 2250 hp
with Co-Co wheel configuration . It is beleived that this loco was introduced in the early 1980s and still run as a passenger and freight locomotive . It has different submodels like the newer JT22CW ( the model below is the JT22MC ) .
The model shown down was also built totally from the scratch in HO scale using styrene and accessory metal and plastic parts . I used the chassis of an Atheran U33-C plastic locomotive kit . The trucks had add on styrene made parts to look very much like the prototype. It was brush painted in light silver and decaled in red, white and black colors representing the Egyptian flag . This loco, like most of the models shown on this page, has an engine and can be run on model layouts.
