the length is in standard lego Santa Fe Super Chief size and all the seats can be used.

NOTE: the train bearings in light bluish gray are no more available at lego pick a brick since few weeks ago!
hopefully I have been able to buy quite a few of them on time!


thank you for viewing and for your comments

have a nice lego day

It's pretty good. I tend to prefer the normal train doors instead of brick built ones, but I suppose train doors in light bluish grey don't exist.

not exactly, they exist in the original Santa Fe cars in light gray (not bluish), but they tend to be quite expensive on bricklink and difficult to find as "new".
I agree with you, it would have been much better with train doors.

i found a handful of them, ended up getting 20 doors (10 left+ 10 right) it was the glass inserts that killed me...
i still haven't used the things because every time i try to put a car together it just ends up reminding me of the santa fe cars
and i really want something different but still built in gray...

any ideas on what i could do?
