CYPRUS OPENS ITS OWN NRM

Model Rail (UK) - - Backscene -

Fol­low­ing my ap­peal (in MR223) for in­for­ma­tion on the Cyprus Gov­ern­ment Rail­ways’ 2‑6‑2Ts, I was con­tacted by Mike Rad­ford of MARC Mod­els. Mike pro­duced Model Rail’s ‘Night Ferry’ etched brass kits some 15 years ago, and he’s still sell­ing them. (www. mar­c­mod­els.co.uk/html/night_ ferry.html) He’s help­ing me with pic­tures and in­for­ma­tion to com­plete Keith Wil­lows’ lit­tle CGR 2‑6‑2T, and he tells me that the Na­tional Rail­way Mu­seum of Cyprus opened its doors to the pub­lic on July 9. It is sit­u­ated at the South­ern terminus of the line at Evrychou, 72 miles from Fa­m­a­gusta.
