All images were render with the Cinema4D Advanced renderer with global illumination. No modifications were made to the images other than levels adjustments in Photoshop.
Sky texture not included.
Quads and triangles only.
Topology was carefully crafted adding more details where needed rather than relying on brute force subdivision procedures.
Planar projection was used to generate uv's were necessary.
Materials are native Cinema4D materials.
47 textures files are used on various materials in the size range of 256 to 2048. Textures were sized based on the area they cover and on how important the detail for that texture is.
Normal map textures were used to add relief and details. e.g the ridges on the roof of the cars and some internal details.
The rig was one of the most challenging parts on creating this model due to the many chains, bars and cars that need to be interconnected.
Doors, wheels and motion path have been rigged.
Left and Right doors can be opened and closed with a simple slider.
Wheels turn automatically when the train is animated on a path.
A Custom script has been created that adjusts the position and orientation of all cars on a path, animation of the train is achieved by simply setting keyframes on a single object,
Chains and pars connecting car trains have been rigged with constrains and ik chains.
Advertisement, brands and names in the interior of the train are fictitious.
