1st/2nd class express passenger car

It's been really hard to show the whole train on one picture

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.

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

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

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 !!

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.
