C-16 2-8-0
About this creation

I thought I'd go back and make another American locomotive but this time a narrow gauge prototype based on the C-16 and DSP&P (Denver, South Park & Pacific railroad) 2-8-0. It's coal burning locomotive designed to run on 3' 6inch gauge tracks in the American Southwest. The prototype color is dark green with a Russia iron boiler jacket but since I'm limited on dark green, I thought I'd try dark blue. Plus it looks better IMO. ;) Enjoy!

Quoting Carter Wall No I mean the lego wheels, those are not avrige size.
They are custom LEGO compatible drivers made by Ben Fleskes at http://bigbenbricks.com/ I needed smaller wheels than what LEGO makes to match the prototype C-16 well enough.

Quoting Carter Wall why are the driving wheeles so small?
Carter, steam locomotives have different sized drivers to match their type of use, passenger locomotives use large diameter drivers for high speeds whereas freight locomotives, such as the C-16, used small diameter drivers and more of them for better traction and maximum torque to haul heavy loads.

Trains don't appear to be very popular around here, but don't let that dishearten you. I think you've done an awesome job with this locomotive. Beautiful work!
