Great colors.

Yes, perfect choice of colours. I wonder where you got your knowledge from. These look perfectly German due to their livery and markings although the wagons are of British origin - which is hard to notice at a first glimpse however. Top job!

Thanks guys! I wasn't sure on the colors for African rolling stock, but I assumed they would be similar to what was seen in Germany. As my reference, I've been using photos from the model train site www.eurorailhobbies.com. Their catalog lets you select items by era and country.

Ok, I've been ignoring the project for a bit, but finally have something new to add:



As usual, a little more detail and some additional photos on the blog:

That carriage is a great addition! The livery makes it look distinctively German.
