The full consist includes: locomotive, tender, baggage car, passenger car, tavern car, passenger car and observation car. CAD pictures of the individual cars can be found in the main directory, here (no interiors, sorry):

It's all still a work in progress, but I'm using a lot of basic bricks, so it should be very doable when my finances improve. I even have a design in mind for the karaoke machine.

Well, I've already built the locomotive, which was really the only tricky part. I've extracted a parts list for the five cars (minus interiors) and I guesstimate it'll cost around $100, maybe $125, (plus tables and chairs, etc.) to build them all. As for when, I plan to get started as soon as my finances allow me to spend the money, but that may not be for several months.

Custom made, injection molded, train wheels by Ben Fleskes. Worth every penny.

Well put. This is a great train. If lego had made it, I'd buy it, even though I do nothing with the train theme.
Beautiful, beautiful train!
