  1. Wow….This is the train I’m taking next month with a friend. We’re around 30 years old, can we still stay at the Flying Pig, or is it just for younger people?

  2. If you read french, have a look to the web page of FreeLUG (given into the description) which describes the building of the first version of the track.

  3. I would love to find more info on how to make that custom track. The only resource I found was here:

  4. You guys done it again. Brilliant high speed track layout and city landscapes (including the skyscrapers). I simply love the train’s sound it makes when it’s sped up. Also not only your tracks are customed, thoses embankment curves look custom to. Two thumbs up!
