Hey Sam
It looks like a 2-8-0T. I can't quite tell about the drivers. Can you give us some more info ? Looks real good so far.

This one is an 0-6-6-0t. If you look closely you can see the second pair of cylinders, and she is a woodburner!(haven't added the wood yet though) I don't know about making her re-fillable, I kinda don't think I'm up to that. I built her by extending the porter 0-4-0's frame and adding a third set of drivers. I have taken most of the parts off of other locos of mine, so the work has gone pretty fast.

I like that 0-6-6-0t sam, but I might need to make a map with wider turns :wink: .

I also got around to finding a place to host files for free, so here is the beta of my gon:

It seem that my hosting is a bit heavy on the adds, but atleast for now I guess its what works.

I don't know about that, this little thing is going to be right at home on the tight curves. She really isn't that big, shes small in comparison with the magma. I should have put pencil's porter in that shot so you could get an Idea of how big she is....

I see what you are saying. Now that I look more closely, I think it looks somewhere around 3 times longer than the porter. Mostly I had been using the magma, so I wasnt thinking about how small it is. I get it now though.

Hey Curtis,
Do you mind if I do some modified versions of your 4-tonners (box, flat and ore) for different products?
No other changes, just different product queues and additions to the name/config file to differenciate from the originals.

Cheers,

I finished off the round-roofed boxcar & sent it to the DLS. This version includes ARN. Hope you enjoy!

I also updated the original boxcar, moving the truck frames to the boxcar mesh for better reskinning possibilities (and in preparation of TC3 / '09 enhancements)...

for ya.
