Transat Express - Post apocalyptic scene

Backstory:
'In 1992 a nuclear war has devastated most of the planet, the remaining high-tech colonies are bound together by a high speed train system, which is the only safe way to travel through the irradiated wasteland.'
A post apocalyptic scene I created a while back in Unreal Engine 4. I used some asset packs for the environment, but I made the high speed train set myself.
The yellow car wreck appearing in the scene is from one of my favorite vehicle artists on Sketchfab: Renafox. Check out his profile!

The trainset was modeled in 3DSMax, using a German ICE and British Eurostar train units as reference. It is a very robust several decade old machine. It is powered by a small nuclear reactor in the engine unit, and has heavy lead coating against radiation
