I wanted to do a layout based on these photos but at 1/13 scale it was not possible. So I choose to do that at 1/72 scale because at this scale there are french military figures and arabs too.


At Morocco in 1918, the french developed narrow gauge railways of 60 cm for civilian and military used. 60 cm at 1/72 scale is more of less 9mm, so I could used too the 009 material.


The layout will be an oval of 120 cm by  47 cm with an hidden part behind to finish the oval

I finish the layout the 11 th of November in memory of those who fight an died for us and our liberty.

I add the brushes, trees and people. Sorry there is no foreign legion but french army.

An interesting theme and nicely done. That's a lot of palm trees to have made.

Since few days, I work on the layout.

This is the top view of the layout.

This is the hidden part of the layout. I want to thank my friend Claude Deschamps for the electronic part.

This is the general overview of the layout

I ordered a baldwin from minitrains. I was badly surprised by the default on electrical pick-up (quality of Germany and made in China I supposed).

The baldwin with decauville luggage car done by my friend Jean-Pierre Duval in 3d.

Once again I plead with you guys to upload your photos directly to this forum, do not link photos from other sites. A "hold up" from Photobucket can become a permanently broken or changed link and all the photos will disappear from this forum. Just look at some older posts and you'll see black boxes where photos used to be. -- Russ
