I was interested in making my own train after getting the Holiday Train set on clearance. I didn't want to make a regular train, I could make the Holiday Train. I wanted to keep it dark. Red and Black seemed the colors to use.
About this creation
I didn't actually notice the face until I was taking the photos. I have since noticed that faces have popped up in a few of my MOCs. I wanted a cow catcher, and sharp edges. Looking for the right parts I came across a bag of those spikey bits. I had a ton of them from accidently buying a whole bunch of the Aragog in the Dark Forest sets. They were on clearance. $20 sets for 7 bucks. Couldn't pass that up. Lots of good brown and green parts in those sets, and eight sets of legs. I still have lots left over.
That's the engineer from the Holiday Train set. I used a bunch of parts from that set. It was on clearance and that's my favorite type of set.
I like bats and was glad to get 6 of them into the set. I like many of the companies animals.
The passenger car has room for 6 people sitting down and 2 standing. There are chains to keep the trouble makers in place. I only made one car, running out of the nice curved bit that I used to decorate the top of the car. The roof comes off, so it's easy to make someone dead.
The Bat Out of Hell Express is Death's Train and the caboose is his little quiet haven away from the "deadies".
That Death Kitty, Death's cat. Another animal that I like.
Most of the time, Lego trains are a bit boring, but NOT THIS ONE !
It should have been more commented, once again.
The idea is very good, and it's so nicely done...
Love the colors too. Awesome train !
A beautiful evil train. I can imagine it screaming along the infernal railway into the gates of Dis.
The design reminds me of Rodney Matthews' "Heavy Metal Hero," image number 6 at http://www.rodneymatthews.com/posters.htm#
Your discworld-like death is brilliant.
This has a lot of style man! Looks like one of the outrageous things from Metalocalypse or something. Even though it's evil it's still a lot of fun to look at! It'll be nice to see more from you.
I like it

Incredible! The whole Haunted Train theme is rarely used, which is a shame because it can come out really nice (this is a fine example). Anyways, I love the colour scheme and gothic detailing on this, and the name rocks also. This train made my day. Excellent work, and I'm looking forward to more creations from you.
