Portuguese Colonial Wars & locomotives - by Carlos Briz


(Class 11 1-4-1 steam locomotive - Benguela Railways)

Once again, it is all JF's fault!

Can you believe this guy failed to warn me that this post was on the blogger for weeks now, ready to be "texted"?


These are more detailed pics for a dio that we already placed here, shown to us by CB when we met in Coimbra, last Christmas, and that is full of scratch-built goodies.


The Benguela Railways Company was a private company that explored that Benguela railway line for 99 years (ended in November 2001), and once had the biggest eucalyptus plantation in the world, in order to produce wood to feed it's steam locomotives.
