Thanks again for all the comments...and yes James, this train is moving. It's coming up on the station, so it's probably about 25 MPH or so.

This wonderful image just popped up on the BP home page and I wanted to congratulate you on it and your win! I really like your design with the tracks dividing in from of the full-steam-ahead engine. Well done Bill!! I enjoyed your gallery also.
