And here's the big one!

This is actually the second of these Geotrax Toys I've converted but this one is far more complete that the previous one, having the arched upper frame, Freight conveyer, lower decks and other parts that give it a much more substantial look.

Went a bit sci-fi/cyberpunk on this one also by adding some Mantic Battlezone panels.

Lots more pictures (pre and post paint) and construction notes here:

With a Train, two stations and 10 trestles, I've got a complete train line that will stretch across an 8 foot table, but you'll have to wait for my adepticon game coverage to see it in action.

Coming later this week is the 5th and last Adepticon Prep post. 4 Helicopters, two of which are a tribute to a local helicopter company.

Tremendous work! I think this is the first sci-fi train setup I've *ever* seen in all my many years browsing the dusty corners of the wargaming internet. You should be proud!

Very nice, I'd love to game on that.

Thanks DA THB,
Not sure if our paths will cross anytime soon, but if you ever find yourself in Chicagoland, let me know!

PRW,
The high praise is much appreciated!
I wish I could claim to be unique but I got inspiration from 4 other 28mm Sci-Fi Trains, Two were from Necromundicon (40k and Votoms), and the other folks had done ork train and a 40k Space Marine train, neither of which I've been able to find recently.
