This was a beginning of the year very productive

I finally finished a complete train

This is the replica of the Spanish Talgo cars.

This Moc is the night train from Lisbon to Madrid, the journey is made to the border with Portugal after a locomotive for an exchange of Renfe.

They are coaches out of the ordinary are smaller, lower and united by a esto Boggie an axis between them

This was the part that gave me joy to do, inspired by some of the Mocs James Mathis connection of coaches use a complex system in a straight line coaches are attached snugly, in curves (tested and running without problem) are separated giving a slightly off each other with space to bend, return to the line, unite again.

How are short (22 studs) follow the lines and curves without "falling off" I think in relation to the angles of the curves are perfect.

a whole are 6 carriages, trailed by CP2600

The coaches look slightly too small compared with the prototype photo (Railway/road modelling term - "prototype" means the real thing), but they look very good.

They're certainly a change from the usual passenger coaches everbody MOCs! :classic:

Very good attempt at this 'Sergio' - I think they look fantastic. :thumbup:
The likeness you can easily see between your MOC and images of the real one.
Excellent work again and keep on bricking ! :grin:

Well done! I'm still trying to figure out how the articulation works (I'm really a beginner at this) but it seems to serve its function very well. The whole train together is very impressive.

I really like that engine.
I really like those wagons.
Sorry to say so, but.....those wagons look to small (too low) compared to the engine, so I don't think they go too well together.
I would propose lowering the locomotive, it's too high compared to it's original proportions.

You captured those coaches really well. I thought they looked a little small too but they are in the correct size compared to the engine. Excellent work :thumbup:

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

looks real nice. And as I have seen Talgos in real, they are small.

The boggies are nicely done as well.
