The original set up. 

A rebellion has started, funded by Turkish and German agents.  The Rebellion is led by the mysterious Been Leadín, rumored to be the result of a relationship of a Saudi tribal leader and Afghani Princess.  He has declared Jihad on the British Empire, France, and all the western world. 

Our story (game) begins with a British Armored train, carrying 3 squads of infantry, and multiple guns on the train.  The train is proceeding south from the fort near BadJelly to the station at Sowerfrut. 

On board is the Afghani Princess Resophia Lajoren.  Recently captured in a raid on the compound of Been Leadín.  Also, re-captured was the Army payroll previously captured by Been Leadín.  5,000 gold Rupees. 

Been Leadín announced he will pay a reward of a previous captured army payroll (5,000 gold rupees) for the return of the princess.  He lays no claim the 5,000 gold already on the train.

The announcement has had the effect he desired.  It has brought forth every Arab, Baluchi, Afghan, Pathan, Berber, Tuareg, Pashto, and Moor cutthroat within 100 leagues.  (Meaning all our figures).

FOUNDER OF THE D'ISREALI ARMY

For 28mm, Lionel is definitely the way to go.   It's the closest in scale (O scale).    So if you need trains or buildings for your game, it's a good fit.    See also my "last train west" post under the post-apocalyptic section.

Looks like a lot of fun with a variety of forces.

That thar train is a sitting duck for a mine under the rails!  Next time you must put one of the cars in front of the engine.  Or, oops!  ;)

The rail lines are much too important to all parties to actually wreck the rails.
