Exellent train MOC! The shape is practically exact to that of the real train! But one question: is it motorized?

Fantastic MOC, great detail and nicely proportioned. I love that the doors work too, can you say how you did the metallic looking detail near the driver cab, looks great but can't see what bricks are involved?

Great work. It is a really nice train you made.

Actually I think you managed to make an ugly train look good. (And now I hope I didn't offend anyone)

It's beautiful :)

Q for 7-wide builders. Where exactly do you make the switch from 6 wide bogeys to 7 wide carriages?

There are a few techniques that you can use.

If you want to use standard bogey plates, you need a hole in your train base centered on the middle stud of your 7 wide base.

Thin Technic liftarm or these plate with hole will work, though the liftarms normally give a more solid base.

Another technique is to use a standard 4x2 technic plate with brackets on either end followed by a plate on tile as illustrated in this thread

These techniques also work for power function bogies, where the hole allows a technic axle to drive the wheels.

My favorite solution, for carriages where I don't need powered bogies, is just to build a 7 wide base with a six wide plate and a one wide plate followed by a second layer of two wide plates on the sides. I then use a 2x2 turntable to connect the bogie, it can attach into the tubes (rather than between them) of the six wide baseplate which gives the required offset to correctly center the bogey. It also means you can abandon the more expensive bogey plate in favour of a brick built bogey which is likely to be cheaper and more flexible for detailing.
