CIWL 4250
Reproduction of CIWL WR-4250 (ÖBB).
About this creation
Model of the Waggon-Restaurant from the CIWL company (CIWL = Commpagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits) No. 4250, currently registered with the ÖBB (Austrian National Railroad)
The waggon was built in 1919 in France, based on spanish building plans. (Which means that it is a little shorter than "normal" waggons of this type)
In total 8 identical waggons were built.

Quoting Thomas Graafland Awesome work! Love all the details and the scale is impressive. I'm very interested in what wheels you have used. Great job!

I always thought that a twice-the-scale train model could be fantastic. Now I know that it can be! Beautiful work; the interior of this is wonderful.

Quoting JWG 258 impressive in scale and the level of detail. The yellow decals for trim work is a nice touch.
Thanks. Just to be clear; All the yellow lines are brick-built. It´s only the texts that are stickers.

A luxurious build to suit a luxurious subject. The scale is impressive too and it's brilliant how you've used this to add so much detail. I like how you've used the 1x1 cylinders to make the folded fabric corridor connector and the removable side wall is a great feature.

Quoting Marin Stipkovic Miniland scale I presume, wonderful work.
It´s not deliberatly miniland scale, but certainly pretty close. How many studs wide are the miniland trains, I wonderż?

Rarely do we see a work so loving. The degree of detail is overwhelming when I look at the wagon I see no difference to the original. The chairs and tables are wonderful. I especially like the many technical extras.

Blimey. I was already in awe looing at the exterior shots and comparing them to the original. But then you had to throw in those interior shots as well! Splendid work all around.
