My last pilgrimage:

BM CG Za306 Apr01a.jpg

Photo Balkanmodels: April 2001 loco Ζα306 at the Engine Shed Thessaloniki. Interesting refuge from the sun by the front buffers. Before you ask, I have to say that I did not pose those props in the foreground. :lol:

Hi everyone,

Another goodie I found while browsing the old negatives chest. It's the Za tender as it appeared at the MAI in 1978

Actually, it was allocated to the "ΣΥΝΕΡΓΕΙΟΝ ΧΗΜΙΚΗΣ ΕΚΧΟΡΤΩΣΕΩΣ ΓΡΑΜΜΗΣ" i.e. Chemical Weed Control Crew...
Try to guess now what the chemical product might have been, back in the late 70s...

Hi everyone,

Time to rekindle the fires...

While browsing the web, I stumbled today on this site
http://roland.arzul.pagesperso-orange.f ... istice.htm

The page is about the WWI repairs to France, and in includes a wonderful pic of the left side of Baden IV. From the modeller's perspective, the machine is very similar (almost identical) to the Za, and, bearing in mind that there is no living memory of the Za working in Greece, we can be allowed to take a few liberties in order to scratchbuild a credible model!!!

Has anybody tried to scratchbuild a Za? Plse post...
