These are great.

It is also nice to see models with an Indian theme.

Are you going to try a loco as well?

And here I made some simple couplers, which are quite easy to make and couple.

And also a new coach, quite elite looking yet simple livery...
It's the Shatabdi Express coach!

Shatabdi Express trains are a series of fast passenger trains operated by Indian Railways to connect Metro cities with other cities important for tourism, pilgrimage or business. Shatabdi Express are day-trains and they return to the station of origin the same day.

I'd like to thank Don, Elliott and Kevin for their interest in these models.

By the way, Elliott, are you interested in railway related builds?

History of these models......

Before completely designing these coaches(they are with the appropriate dimensions), I did so many test builds. Here are the pics of those models too....
(All on A4)
Test build 1
Too small when printed

Faces were two high

Test build 3
Not appropriate length, bogies wrongly designed

Test build 4
Too long, took 3 pages

Test build 5
The appropriate shape!!!
Both ICF (green and yellow) and LHB coaches
