Hello,

My Sidi Fontana layout is nearly finished so it's time for me to create a new one.

I want to reproduce a Sugar cane railways in Egypt at oo9 scale. It's a real 2 feet gauge built by french and english in 19 th century and still used today. The train is used for 50 %  of the cane sugar in Egypt.

.

I will reproduce a part of a sugar cane refinery near luxor with his harbour and crane. The locomotives and the rolling stock don't exist and my friend Jean-Pierre Duval will do this with 3d printings.


This is the  mock up
