Wow! We really have to talk! Last year our Home Depot had a similar setup in the store and I took a pic of it for future plans, seeing as how I love The Polar Express and really wanted to add it in to the display one year. Seeing yours has set a new burning desire all over. Check this pic and compare to your own creation. Pretty small world.

that is awesome - the polar express is one of my favourite movies of all time, I am incredibly jealous of this - would love to see it up close and personal!

you've done an amazing job with it :D

(jjust realised you can even see my tag displaying an artist image of a scene from poalr express!)

Actually... I think it would probably be a LOT safer in MY yard!!! And being the good PC'er that I am... I volunteer to keep it safe for you in my front yard until after Christmas is over with. :P

It looks absolutely INCREDIBLE! So very nicely done!!!

I thought that you were going to keep it in the garage. When it's set back it gave the impression that it was coming out of the tunnel and into a mountain pass cut. You could use painter's drop cloths to cover the sides of your garage for privacy and it would add to the appearance. Having it set back would also prevent kids from wanting to climb on it. Close the garage door and you're done for the night.

My garage is a working one, not to mention we have about 6 people living in the house so our driveway is always full....However 2 years ago my father invested in a 24 hour surveillance system for me...along with the fact that we're in one of the safest towns in the state..Im not worried to much about vandals

Oh no, luckily for us....all we got was a little rain and some 70 mph winds.....When I build something...I make sure its solid....I even do "wind tests" with 2 leaf blowers haha...To try and simulate ...But as far as next year goes....Thats a good question....Better start thinking now!

Yes, I've got an outdoor speaker mounted right under the boiler area that loops a 5 min audio spiel that I spliced together from the movie! If anyone wants that audio I'll gladly send it to you!!

 

Also for this year, the engine will move...I've cut the black opening of the tunnel out and put the engine on a track...It'll move in and out on a timer
