Inspired by a incredibly wide variety of sources, everything from the BlueBell railway, Dinky & Corgi diecast toy, the Magic Roundabout (60’s & New version), Biro, Thomas The Tank engine, British Rail, Hornby & Tri-ang, and even Casey Jones! Sparky’s Toon Train is a cartoon style 3D model with just over 30 parts as shown below.

More info can be found in the read me and best of it it’s totally 100% free!

—————————————————————————————————————-

.: A complete model train :.

ToonEngine - A proper old fashioned steam train, as it should be! 

The engine features a highly detailed cab with pipes, levers, dials, Smart mapping also means you can change the nameplate quickly with the supplied BMP template in the textures folder. Plus you easily add a face to the front texture map for Thomas style trains (not included as I’m unsure if this concept is copyrighted or not).

ToonTender - A tender for the engine, complete with modeled coal.

ToonCarriage - Travel in 1st class comfort in the toon carriage.

ToonWagon - A open wagon for carrying stuff - textured as the other models in primary colours for better images.

ToonMilkTruck - It’s a toon train - did you expect beer! smile

ToonPWagon - A semi closed wagon for carrying more stuff.

ToonGuardVan - Handy for Casey Jones scenes and for hiding from the Boss, the Guards Van.

.: Accessories :.

BridgeGirder - A girder bridge.
BridgeStone - A stone bridge.

.: Scenery :.

SceneryFence10B & SceneryFence10W
Avaliable in 2 colour schemes Brown and white this fence is a 10 unit section.

SceneryFence20B & SceneryFence20W
Avaliable in 2 colour schemes Brown and white this fence is a 20 unit section.

SceneryHill - a simple hill model like as seen in most cartoons.

SceneryHillTunnel - A hill with a tunnel.
SceneryTunnel - a tunnel without a hill smile
Please keep your heads inside the carriage when in the tunnel.

SceneryHouse - A nice toon style terraced hour, with a 100% perfect mesh topology!

SceneryStation - With a nod to the colour scheme of the Tri-ang station, with seats, signs and silver Corgi style milk churns. Station signs can be easily changed to whatver you like by editing just texture map.

SceneryTree - cartoon style tree, as you’d see in the Beano.
SceneryXmasTree = cartoon style xmas tree, like in the Dandy.

.: Track & Stuff :.

Track10 & Track20
Track in lengths of 10 and 20 units.

TrackCorner(s) 1-4 - bit of tracks so you can go around corners.

TrackPoint(s) 1-2 - allows trains to move onto other tracks.
TrackPointsLever - switches the train from one track to another. 

TrackLevelCrossing - for when those annoying cars want to cross the tracks. The image on the train sign is that as used at Amberley Chalk pits, just in front of the tunnel where they filmed the “Lucky Strike” mine scene for a James Bond movie.

TrackBuffers - stops your train from running of the end. Note the design is like a real one where metal boxes clamped to the rails slow the train down slowly and safely. 

TrackSignal - to keep things nice and safe.

BTW - As this will be my last big freebie for a few months, I thought I’d give the community something nice to say thanks for being so supportive.

This would be a great piece to add to a Christmas scene as a toy train around the Christmas tree.
