OO/HO African profile model railway in Kenya

I usually post in Railroad.Net's Worldwide Railfan forum, but I thought some railway modellers might be interested in the layout I am beginning to build in Kenya.

I'm looking forward to more pictures, John. African railways aren't usually something that comes to mind when thinking of modeling, so it'll be interesting and exciting to see your work.

Thanks, mate. I'll post pictures as I go along, but I'm conscious that this is going to be a long, long process over many years...
