I have a new 9v motor. I am happy. That sums it up.
About this creation
This may not be perfect, and it shouldn't be. It was rather a "prototype." This was made to try to test a SNOT nose, and special colors. It is obvious I ran out of the underside round pieces, found only on a discontinued airplane set.
The passenger car. The doors are quite small, I know.
The dining car.
Here is the fun part. The articulation, in the beginning, was only the truck plus two flat pivoting pieces.
Because it always came off, I replaced them with these technic pieces, which are easy to take off, and put back on.
