That's looking very tidy indeed. The yellow stripe is a good feature and lifts the plain grey appearance very nicely.

These are for my yellow cargo train. i am making a maintenance one, so i will have about 3 of these and then use that truck from i think its the red cargo set with the digger/train maintenance truck on it.

Train looks great. Another idea for you is to use the 4203 mining set but put the lorry trailer on railway bogies. I'm working on one at the moment. I have narrowed the chassis of the excavator by 2 studs and will try and put the small train wheels back and front at some stage

They look good. I am thinking of building some coal carrying wagons myself for my black steam train to pull. Trying to come up with something I like. On yours I like that you have the doors that open on the sides. I was thing of the whole side dropping down, but maybe I can just use the doors in a similar fashion.

These are more ballast type trucks, but coal trucks from steam days just need to be a little shorter thats all.

my over all yellow cargo train. with all its trucks

(snip wonderful pictures)

Wow that is going to be a beautiful MOW train when it's all done. I can't think of any criticism or helpful comment to make at all except to say that if it was my MOW train I'd add another ballast truck.

Looks like someone liked my MOW train that I uploaded to MOCPages! :laugh:

Good job on making it look more authentic. I have to admit, I should have thought about that yellow cargo engine.

Anyway, good job on the grey wagons! :thumbup:

The LDD was good looking, but the real thing is even better. Makes me want to try building a mineral wagon on a somehow wider basis (my trains are in the 7-8 studs range for witdh).
