Anyone doing armored trains?

Has anyone done armored trains. The great powers all ran them in WWI and Germany and the Soviet Union used them in WW2. I'm working on mounting turrets and anti-aircraft guns for a WW2 era locomotive and wonder if anyone else has tried this.

I dont think it was just the paint job. Germany had armoured trains with AA guns, tank loaders and Howitzers !
Would be interested to see what you come up with Larry !

The Russians still have Mirv nuke armed ballistic missles on their armoured trains today.

As for reference to the larger armoured and armed trains you could try tracking down this book (Osprey titles are great as reference aids)
Armoured Trains book
Anyway, good luck with your project, looking forward to seeing the result!!
