I'm part of a forum doing work on Sid Meier's Railroads and a member is asking about an engine he found on RR Picture Archives. The author did not list the engine type, and the only other I can find is a Turbomeca RGP, which I can not find on a Net search.

Here are the two pictures:

If this type has been run in any other country and I can be directed to photos it would help.

BTW, the member is wanting to do a game map of Egypt, so if anyone wants to add in their two dollars (inflation you know:rolleyes:) they are welcome:
