Our 1" GP-20 with High Cube boxcar train consist was built for an interactive visual art install for Josephine Pryde and was nominated in the UK for the Turner prize last year.  Our train was run by hundreds of people unfamiliar with the hobby at various gallerys across the U.S. Two to three  people can ride comfortably on the Hi-Cube boxcars shown above. Looks like the engineer is having fun!
