I especially like how you used cheese wedges to give a rounded look to the front of #201 and some other engines.
However, I have never built trains and don't really know how involved it is, so I'm not qualified to say whether or not these are technically impressive.
It's ok, I don't expect the folks here to "get it" like on other venues. But I have strong ties here so I share regardless. Back when I started building trains, building castles was a much simpler task. Nowadays building castles seems to have more in common with building trains and spaceships than what I used to build.
Let's just say the folks over at the Texas State Railroad recognize what I've built for what they're supposed to be, that's good enough for me.
I am one of the guilty peerers who didn't compliment you on how nice this looks. I'm sure a lot of the viewers here fall into the same category that Rouge and I do, which is that we enjoy something like this, but can't possibly appreciate how much time and effort you must go through, never having built a train ourselves.
All that to say, it looks amazing, so keep up the good work!
Thanks much! I appreciate you looking.

Thanks! Everything you see has been built and rebuilt several times. It's all a matter of trial and error.
This looks absolutely amazing, you have done a great job. I actually saw this first over on the frontpage of EB not here
Never mind, just simply awesome complex.
I only I had the space, the time, the bricks I would want to try building something like this
Thanks! I don't really have the space, either. I had to take it and set it up at a local park just to have enough room to photograph it all together.
