Abandoned Train for games

Hi Guys!

I am creating this thread in search of inspiration. I am to make a current-gen (I'm talking ps4 and xbox:one here) game asset and showcase it in UDK (I've never used UDK before )

This is a test assignment which is part of an application process for a credible games company and am told to really "use your imagination" having been given some images of a steam train as a loose reference.

I dont want to limit my creativity by worrying about poly counts and texel space yet - I just wanna riff it out in max for a bit right now. I need to get my creative juices flowing!

SO. Here begins my modeling (for now) WIP thread for my currently untitled train model! PLEASE crit and be as much of a jerk in doing so as you can possibly be - I need this to be a really nice asset; I don't have a deadline.

I also have to make the whole asset look abandoned (I'm thinking the whole Arkham City/Bioshock-1&2 vibe for this at the end)

Reference sheet I am using to start off; the top-right image was the one provided to me.

If anyone has anything they think looks cool please dont hesitate to upload it or point me to it. Even show me some of your own work if you like. I need to get more inspired

I've taken a bit of a direction with this next one; still trying things out. Its though annoying as I don't have much time to work on this much lately and unfortunately can't allow it to consume me as most projects tend to do.

Huh wow I love the design language and the level of detail.
How are you going to texture all of that?

I'm allowed 4k maps. At the moment I'm really just trying to pin the design down. If I have to cut stuff later I will but The only think I can see having to go now are the cogs but again, dont want to limit creativity yet

(in other words, I Have no idea - we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, haha... got a few tricks up my sleeve though)

Design is looking great. I really like the structural stuff you have going on. Keep going!
