This is absolutely beautiful. The attention to detail is breath-taking, and demands the audience to sit back, and drink it in. The colors are rich, but don't over-saturate the picture. I must admit, the idea of an entire city running on the rails is something that excites me greatly. You've drawn something I never knew I wanted, but now will find it hard to stop thinking about. Astonishing.

I can imagine a war with this city would turn out like this:

"A nation has just declared war on us, sir. What shall we do?"

"We'll just drive straight into their capital then."

Huh, this reminds me of Hitler's 1941 giant broad gauge railroad to span Europe, and it's crazy proposed locomotives.

Hmm reminds me of the book Mortal engines, and of Isaac Asimov's Foundation series. Nicely done, although I find the bit on the right a little weird in perspective. But I have to to say, still amazing and congratz on the DD
