Quoting cyberfrank 2010 the locos look cool, I don t know much about trains, so, I would have appreciated a reference pic of the real thing, as it seems irrealisticly long to me, it s too bad it s ldd, as tf told me you can t do curves on train tracks, pretty important if you ask me, Ihave 2 trains, for real [lego] and problems start in curves, if you can t experiment curves, you better be equipped with lots of patience, your project is bold to say the least, something worth following.
Well SP didn't have Big Boys.I made these up the closest thing to the big boys on the sp were the ac-12 cabforward

To cyberfrank: Trains on curves in LDD is not UNpossible, just very difficult and not worth the effort. And I have noticed that jd and myself have this innate ability to just be able to look at something and tell if it can work on curves. Since we both have real brick trains, we know what works and what does not. And studying other people's designs always helps.

Quoting TF Twitch I am finished, actually. I just need to take pictures and then upload it. Which I will do later at some point. I created two versions. One is smaller and looks more sleek, while the other (and my personal favorite) is larger, bulkier, and just looks mean. The 4-8-4 that I uploaded earlier is something that I designed for the wifey, so it takes after her. This time I made something large and manly. The second version is taller than yours, and the overall length is right in between the two. I will let you know when they are uploaded. This MOC was a great help, thank you very much!

Quoting TF Twitch I am sure that I can figure that part out. I will just put the center of the articulation point halfway between in the middle of the drive wheels.
well they are articulated but not with the newer system i told you about these use bogie plates for articulation points

These are pretty slick! I will take a more in-depth look at them later and write a more detailed review. And thank you for adding the download file, that will help me design my big locomotive.
