I really like of the European designs. Spend 27 months in Germany, was only in Ireland once. The plane needed to be worked on, we sat down in Shannon for a few hours.

Looks great, the single bottem dump and box car came out great, do you weather them ? and do you have a steam engine to pull them ? if so would love to see it.
I use to have a HO scale train, use to build and modify RR cars and engines along with model cars and truck, i compleatly scratchbuilt my trains from the ground up starting with a scratch built engine to fit over the electric motor, then parts from different tains to make unique yard mules and shunters for the steel and iron foundry i had also scratch built, spent so many hour's studying pictures and sneaking into rail yards to look at the engines and RR cars, someday i would like to get back into it, very relaxing, thanks for posting this, good memorys for me.

That is some nice work! I love the detail you have put into these. Those Commercials look like they should be out on the Super Slab(interstate Highway) .
Be careful though, modeling can lead to bigger things.
My Nephew started out racing electrics, then went to Nitro and now has built a Full Scale Crawler and is down to th strip pits running it every weekend the weather is fit. I was over to his house a couple months ago and he had the right front tire about 3 ft up a tree to demonstrate the articulation he had built in.

Too late, the bug has already bitten.
