War in Africa! - by Carlos Briz


(Class 2-3-0 locomotive)

Here they are, two more fine dios for your eyes only.

The Brits do have a great imagination. What you see there is a locomotive armoured with protective carpets, made of heavy rope - hence the hairy look - hence the Mary...thing 
One can only guess where the hair in Mary was...
That's right guys, this is another example of what you can do with the old carpets you have at home.




(Class 2-2-0 locomotive)

And here we have an example of how the Zulus attacked a train, during the Zulu War.

This week I watched for the eleventhousand time the movie "Zulu" (1964).
There is something about that film that outclasses many of the high-tech, 3D, mumbo-jumbo stuff we see nowadays within this genre. 
It must be lines such as "at 100 yards, volley fire!" that do the trick.
