I apologize in advance if you have already shared this, but what printer/service do you use?

If you don't mind, what 3d Printer do you use? From the look's of your pictures, there is not a lot of layering.

With all this motive power you have 'printed' my question is, how many and what kind of cars have you printed? If I had your skills and equipment I would probably have the worlds largest consist of logging cars to go with my 2 & 3 truck shays.

I'm impressed! Got to love the gantry crane. Now if you tell me that the timber decking on the flats is printed I'll be completely gobsmacked.

Was being a smartalek there, the cars are fantastic. I know all about coffee stir stix. My first encounter was a 2 story doll house when my daughter was 3. 22 inches tall with  footprint of 28"x37".

This is amazing!  A friend of mine opined 3D printing will be the future of the model building hobby.  You will pay for and download the plan, to include details (for an extra charge of course!) and print it at home or the hobby shop.  I am really, really inspired by this work.
