Here is a mock-up of the wheels to see how they would work. This uses the original trailing truck setup.
Seen here, the original trailing truck did not work so well on curves.
This is the original trailing truck setup.
This is the new version of the trailing truck that works much better.
Here is the Emerald Northern with its rake of coaches.
This upgrade has been long overdue. It is something that I have been fiddling with for a long time, and now I am finally happy with the final result. It looks more like a real locomotive over my first 4-8-4 Emerald Northern designs.
As always, please rate, comment, and enjoy!

Great work! Now I need to finish my new loco! Love the improvements on the original!
I look forward to your new locomotive! This is technically my third version of the 4-8-4 Emerald Northern, which has become somewhat of my flagship steam locomotive. I have put more time and effort into this one over all of my others.
