Red Armoured Train 
I've been playing around with various options for the command / machine gun wagon over the last couple of days. I've plated up one side and added machine gun ball mountings from a plastic bead cut in half with a razor saw. It's a bit crude but I'll see if I can add some details to make it look more effective.
The other thing I've tried out are the different options for the roof mounted cupolas, all of which have been scrounged from the lego toy box. I'm not sure which arrangement looks the best so will try out a few more combinations before I decide what to do.
I'll also add a door and vision slits to the sides of the wagon so that the machine gunners have something to look through when they fire their broadsides at whatever happens to trundle into range. I'm hoping to finish off this wagon by the end of the weekend, so that I can tackle the engine and tender.
