Unfortunately your Brickshelf folder isn't pulic yet, but from that one image, your train looks fantastic! :thumbup:

Only thing I would suggest, although it might be a little late now, is that all the cars could be dark red. They would look very uniform that way. But hey,I'm just picky. You built an awesome train, and I wish you the best of luck in the contest. :classic:

Really lovely work on this. Are they seven or eight wide? I'm sure you found the challenge in making dark green cars fun.

I found an OK way to present a full rake was to take a photo of each car and photoshop them together like this.

Beautiful entry. I'd love to see it running.

FYI... German dining service cars were often a different color. I believe the dark red is prototypical.

Really beautiful !! I love this :tongue:

I like to know how long the passenger wagons are? I tried to count...40studs ...or ??

Are they OK to run in curves and switches ?

I've never built a wagon longer than 34 or (36?) studs because I feared

it would create problems to run them...

=please comment, you who know this !!

Thank you for your comments.

Passenger cars are 7 wide and 40 studs long. They run perfectly on curves and switches. Dark red is perfectly ok for German cars, as are mixed colors within the express train. Right now I'm working on Dark Blue sleeper car.

I love the colour scheme, can't wait to see that sleeper car. The trick with the asymmetrical 'harmonica' between the cars is really clever; having 1 stud on one car and 2 on the other.

The steamer looks fantastic, but like several people have already noted above, the wagons really stand out too. Very long and sleek design with nice color combinations. Very nice! :thumbup:
