Do It Yourself

Narrow Gauge 1/4" passenger train

As my 2-8-0 shall haul a long passenger train consisting of longer cars than the standard On30 cars one can purchase - self-making is requested. Also I can call a new toy my own: A Darklylabs A3 Laser-Cutter - so I have just to draw the parts as a vectors graph and send...
Sure its not that simple, but hey, here is the progress:
