This is the SSTT (Space Shuttle Transport Train), my first such Train MOC in 2 years and my first non-LDD creation in 10 months. The railway car is used to transport the Space Shuttle to the space center. It took me not very long to build it. The Space Shuttle "Expedition" can be attached to 2 yellow train bogie plates on the the railway car. Even the Maersk SD-40-2 locomotive is strong enough to pull the "SSTT". Sorry about the background (the mess) in all pictures. Please rate, comment and Happy Holidays!

Did this occurred in real life? Transporting a shuttle by train?
Thanks! About transporting the Shuttle by train; no not really but perhaps in real life, the Space Shuttle (the Endeavour) was hauled by the Toyota Tundra in LA following her retirement. I just had a clever idea of building the railway car for the Space Shuttle.
