Quoting re465 . Have you seen this web-page ? http://sbiii.com/bwrkapoc.html
Why, yes I have. That site inspired me to build the Mammoth.

Quoting TF Twitch Question: Since I have been tasked with powering this beast, are you looking for raw pulling power (which would result in slow speed) since this is more of a freight locomotive? Or what exactly are you looking for with speed and pulling power?
I think you got it as this is a freight loco I think it should have tons of pulling power

Quoting TF Twitch The coal tender is completed, which is the easier of the two. Now I have to work on the Vanderbilt-style water tender/canteen. The Mammoth is 15 tracks long, and both tenders combined is 10 tracks long (so about 5 for each tender). Even with that impressive combined tender length, the locomotive section by itself dwarfs the tenders. That is just ridiculous.
well as my home page here says we specialize in steamers that are ridiculously true.

Quoting TF Twitch I have the base of both tenders done. Each is going to have four of the newest PF Train Motors (for a total of 8 motors). After I got the base for one, it was a simple copy and paste for the second. Now I just have to design the first tender to be strictly a coal tender, and copy and paste from my Vanderbilt onto the second tender. And somehow get the colors to match the Mammoth. Sounds easy enough.
good luck I'm almost done just have to finish extending Blair's cab/firebox area.

Quoting TF Twitch Alright, I appreciate it! I am currently working on the tenders for the Mammoth for you.
k so far I got one of the driver sets done and ready for XL drivers right now I'm working on the first driver set and then extend Blair's body to match

Quoting TF Twitch Alright, so she's a coal burner. Not a problem, I just needed to know how to design the first tender. Favor to ask: While you are modding Big Blair, would you be able to come up with a drive wheel set that will use the BBB XL Wheels and still keep her 6-10-10-6 configuration? I have tried it in LDD, but considering all that we have is the L size, it does make it a tad difficult. And I am going to guess that the entire boiler and frame is going to have to be extended, which I counted on. Thank you in advance.
sure I can mod Blair so she can be able to accept the xl drivers without difficulty, but it will take some time. hopefully she'll be done close to this weekend.

Quoting TF Twitch Question: Would it be alright if I made Mammoth's tender actually two tenders? One for the fuel and the other for water. Also, what does Mammoth use for fuel? My guess would be either oil or coal, considering I do not see anything that resembles and ash catcher for a wood-burner.
well the J1 burns both coal and oil.(don't ask unless you have to) so the mammoth will burn coal like it's little sisters, the big boys and challengers. and also I really don't care about the number of tenders behind the mammoth you can do what you like for them(or it).

WIP, I have not had ample time to work on it as much as I have wanted. You will know when it is done.

Quoting TF Twitch Not a problem, I will get on that. I will definitely add more motors to the tender since in LEGO the tender is basically empty anyways. Which means that you can shove more stuff in there. Very helpful, me thinks.
hows the motorization coming along

Quoting TF Twitch I will definately keep the drive wheel arrangement. However, there may be a few axle loss in the leading and trailing locomotive trucks. Unless I can design a tender with enough PF Train Motors that would give enough power. Since I am working with LDD, I am not able to really work with the XL-Motor and gearing. If you want it to run on 9V instead of PF, that is an easy swap between the motors since the PF Train Motor is the same size as the 9V motor. My two newest 4-8-8-4s are intended to have the leading and trailing trucks as PF Train Motors. Just let me know which power system you would like to use.
i was thinking two pf train motors for the pilot truck and same for the trailing truck

Quoting TF Twitch This is what I would do to motorize it, which is how I do my new steam locomotive designs: modify the leading and trailing trucks to use the PF Train Motor, and shove more motors into the tender. Run extension wires from the lead truck through the boiler and to the tender. The tender would house the battery and IR Receiver internally. When I am off shift I will work on designing that, if you are okay with that.
well see if you could keep the wheel arangement when motorizing it. i would like to see it when it's done.

Quoting TF Twitch That is why my newer locomotives are basically hollow on the inside. It saves weight, and the motors do not have to work as hard to move the locomotive. Speaking of motors, how is this Mammoth powered?
this engine is destined for non powered display only. if it is built it will sit in the yard of a LUG's railroad display at conventions.

Quoting TF Twitch I am loving the completed photo! Although I am requesting more in detail photos of this monster. What did you mean by fearing that the body could collapse in turns?
as the articulation poins are over the first and last set of drivers, when the engine would take curves it would have alot of inside overhang and all of it unsupported by wheels and since the boiler would weigh the most the frame might give way thus the engine breaking apart or collapsing.

Quoting Murdoch 17 (No words can describe can the feeling of pure awesomeness installed in this engine.) Great job, it looks like something that if steam had survived into the 1970's - '80's. Keep up the good work!
why thank you, these shots are out dated as 10000 is almost complete.
