Sci-Fi Train Before Paint.

The following is an excerpt of a blog article.  Read Full Article

Here are a few pre-painted pictures today of a project that I've wanted to do for years. A 28mm Sci-Fi Train! The train is made up of an Engine from a Caterpillar brand construction toy train and the cars from a Pixar toy train.  Both were found at different resale shops some months apart. The engine was a particularly easy build.  After removing the "Caterpillar" decals I did was add a few panels to the sides, doors to the front and back and a small standing platform in the rear.

Josh,
I've got two stock Lionel trains. I'd be happy to bring one over for any battle.
A 60/70's Amtrak and a Steam powered freight train.
