ThetaGamma, you have done an amazing conversion, with modelling standards that I can only dream of. Very well done and may we see more of your excellent work.

Thank you for your kind comments, Christo! I am still very much a beginner and nowhere near your level of expertise.

Most importantly, you were the one to actually get me involved in Greek railway modelling (my main focus being Italy) and so made this project possible in first place. Thanks again!


Best wishes,

Bernhard (ThetaGamma)

Thanks, BarbaPanagos!

Playing with the idea of a second THg or a post/baggage combine.

Will keep you posted.


Best regards,

Bernhard

Time to convert my US Army S160 to a Θγ is closing, so I'm gathering what ever will be necessary.
I already had the Balkanmodels photo-etched plates for the Θγ 523 and needed to make a decal for the front number plate.
As my model presents a BALDWIN loco (round builder's plate on the boiler) and the 523 was an ALCO one I also had to make a builder's plate decal to replace it.
The grey areas will be silver when printed.

Bonsoir Pierre,

Nice pic and document! FYI, the Athens-Paris sector was usually an SNCF DEV, coupled two or three times a week to a CIWL WLAB (I never saw an OSE WLAB in that train...). The interesting part of the story is that sometimes the passenger coach was an OCEM A/B!! I happened to take this train a number of times, and I still remember how rough was the riding of the OCEM car, especially when the train crossed in Italy and hit 140km/h...

Thanks for your posting and stay safe!
