Here is my rendition of the sleek, efficient, revolutionary, and modern TGV duplex, the first double-decker hi-speed train. This is one of my greatest projects ever to be completed. Enjoy, and please leave feedback!
About this creation
The whole thing is 7 units: 2 powerheads, 2 single-axis cars, and 3 double-axis cars. There are additional 2nd class cars and an engine car, a possible place for additional 9v motors, that i have yet to make. As of now the train is about 350 studs long.
The cockpit, and bottom floors of the passenger cars are furnished, however the upper levels are not. This TGV was a nightmare to build on ldd; A lot of glitches and imperfections kept me from doing some things that i could have done in actuality. But, with enough effort, it all fit. This is very advanced build; nearly all custom-made hi speed trains are, although the duplex cars are quite advanced as well. This is my second hi-speed train, after the mostly unsuccessful Thalys. I think is one was a huge success. I am quite satisfied with it, the detail, striping, and paning (the window arrangement) is on point for the most part. A few flaws: This train is only meant for long curves, and the grey may be a bit too dark. Also there are only two motors on the 7-unit convoy. Enough said, I hope love it as much as I do! Up-close analysis coming soon. Enjoy!!
