That sounds exciting, Erkut. Will you model the town above the tracks in the first pic?

Yes we are Frederic, infact the layout will be in two sections; the town above the station complex and the mine itself which will be full of surprises. Wink

    Abd and Erkut,

    a very nice choice. Not too large, many shunting possibilities and not too overwhelming mining facilities.
    Please spend plenty of time to work out the storage and fiddle yards to enable a good handling of trains.

hi erkut
big project what scale are you going to use?
do you live close by ?
i checked out the location on google earth it is a very rugged area a good source of local stone.the location for a model is good as there are tunnels on either end of the yard[there are a lot of tunnels on this section of line].is the rail line of stratigic value as it seems to be going in the direction of iran ,iraq and syria.personally i find this area of the world very interesting [no i don,t work of australian military intellegence but sometimes i think i am james bond]
kind regards kim

Hi kim,

The layout will be HO, just like Selcuk, estimated 11 meters long.
Its the landscape that fascinated us, very rugged and baren, opposite to the layouts that we usually see covered with green trees and foilage. Rough terrain it is, Abd's favorite.
Its a copper mine and the railway has no significant value.

Are those old photos of the prototype, or are they still using steam locomotives?

Ray, the steamers are all history now, infact the last batch was pulled out of service in the 1980's. Photos depicts the 1960-1970's.

Ok Gents here we go.

If its a mining layout you need mechanical loco's pulling the mine tippers. Our extensive search yielded to two kits of British origin from Nigel Lawton.

They arrived:



However panic struck us....they are micro small Shocked

Kit's contains etched brass body parts, etched nickel-silver chassis, cast exhaust and radiators and finescale wheelsets.



will you please check out the size of the motor:



the actual size of the loco's is as on the boxes: 34mm (W) x 60mm (L) x 32mm (H)




Constructing these kits requires a lot of precision and micro surgery.....I'm chickening out....and passing all these to our team member Aykut....who is heating his iron.....I promised to do the paint and weathering.

Signing off.
