The prototype of this train was the Super Chief, a train of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railway which operated until 1971. The pictures for the cars I used for building were in a magazine of model railways so there are cars from other trains and American railroads like the dome car of the "California Zephyr" (picture 5+6) and the coach car (picture 3).
About this creation
I`ve never planned to build this train. I started building the red/grey engine and build cars which were together with the engine (or not, like I wrote in the introduction)
The whole train is more than 2.60m (8.5 feet) long.
