These passenger train cars were built by my father around 2003 - 2005 for me. However, the steam & diesel engines were desgined / redesigned by me. The diesel was taken from another Eurobricks user CromeKnight via the LDD MOC Index. It was then redesigned & recolored into it's current colors and shape. I had these in real life long before LEGO Digital Designer was around, (except for the Diesel!) and only recently recreated them in Digital format. I had him make them in Black and red, as black was a realistic color to build in, and a red stripe at the base was used on some offical 1980's LEGO steam engines, so I took that and ran with it. They may not look the best, but I played with them well, and tried to recrate them as best I could. (Note: the doors from the bagggage car are left off because they are not in LDD.)
Here are the pics:
