But let's continue in english. Henschel delivered quite a few streamlined diesel locomotives to Egypt’s National Railways between 1958 and 1960. Sadly, original builders pictures cannot be shown here because they are still copyrighted by the Henschel museum. However I can add a few catalogue pages for those interested.
First of all, the works numbers related to the early egyptian deliveries:
Model AA16 ESR # 3201-3228 / Henschel # 30200-30237 / 1960 / AA 16 / 1435mm / A1A-A1A-de
Model AA12 ESR # 3601-3670 / Henschel # 30130-30199 / 1960 / AA 12 / 1435mm / BoBo-de
Here’s an image of a Model AA12 locomotive from a late 1950s brochure. The main body colour of the AA12 locos was a deep blue. The pinstripes are painted in red, white and black – egypt’s national colours.
Another catalogue page showing a Model AA16 loco plus data:
One more page showing a TT12 Loco built for Ghana and an Egyptian KK16:
An early brochure displays Henschel’s (proposed!!)export series of the 1950s.
Actually, Henschel never built locos like the ones shown above. The licence-built diesels from Kassel were no clones of EMD products in any way. The model B loco depicted here reminds one of the US model E8a loco and the Australian GM Class; the model AA resembles a kit-bash of two F-Units spliced together while the G12 ist the real thing created in La Grange. Henschel did a lot of freelancing when it came to carbody styling...
