STM, this is a fantastic idea for a historical diorama!  I can't wait to see how this scene progresses.  Excellent work!

It looks great and a great idea.  I think "Building the Future" would be a better title though.

That looks awesome! Reminds me of the old photos of the meeting of the Union and Central Pacific on the first transcontinental railroad. 

Great job there on the locomotive and the figures!

Do I Like This?  

          Nah!, I love this. It would be right at home in a Rail Museum collection. Excellent Work and the sepia effect makes it stand out. Like a 3-D photo from way back when!

That looks simply superb!!! 

I agree, it looks like something that belongs in a musuem! 

 

I've got a Wolfman I want to paint up in black, white, and grey since it's a B&W movie. But he's going to look nothing as good as what you've got here!

Anfortunately in my country the target group of interest bying these kind of things is small, even for educational  purpose.

Hey!

       Just a thought. That is so good you should put it in a railroad Museum. Where do you live? I am sure someone like the New Braunfels  TX. Railroad Museum would display it!

That would be nice if I was staying somewhere like USA, but unfortunately in Greece it is very difficult to exhibit even in a museum dedicated to trains.
