Here's a little video I made out of boredom. I know it's not much, but let me know what you guys think
my super locomotiveDavid Wardale in his book Red Devil and Other Tales from the Age of Steam described a large hypothetical Garratt that would worked well for US freight railroads a 6 cylinder 4-12-2+2-12-4. He also described using hydraulics to power some of the wheels on a steam locomotive. There was a contemporary equivalent the 8 cylinder 2-6-6-2+2-6-6-2 super Garratt proposal it would have had one advantage it would have ben more flexible so if you made a 6 cylinder 4-6-6-2+2-6-6-4 with 6 driving axles powered hydraulicly you would have the best of all of the above but why stop there. You can power the 6 non powered axles. You can put The cylinders under the cab and smoke box. You can put traction motors under the water canteens that will accompany this locomotive so they can be powered by trailing diesels.
Port Hope: Halloween
''Halloween is a special time of year for people all over the world,some enjoy this time of year as a chance for celebration while other fear this time''.
Sapphire the BR Standard class 9f was returning home to her shed at Port Hope.
''First time i'll be celebrating Halloween with friends, since those dark times...'' Sapphire said as she remembered the 1960's and the mass scrapping of steam engines, some with only ten years of service.
''Its OK Sapphire, many steam engines were saved, including some of your sisters mainly 92203 and 92220 known now as Black Prince and Evening Star'' Her driver said as he wiped the sweat from his forehead.
''yeah, Steven's right'' Said her fireman, as he shovelled coal into her firebox, while keeping an eye on the boiler pressure and water level.
Soon Sapphire arrived back at her berth along side a Class 37 named Alpha Centauri, as Sapphire rolled back she gave her a cold stare.
''I guess she still haven't forgiven me'' Alpha Centauri said to Antares the
No train tags on DADA no longer supports tags like 2-6-0, 4-6-4 and basically the white system of classification is no longer supported.
If your subject matter is often trains, this may make it hard for you to find other peoples art and for other people to find your art unless you have the info in the title or description. If you look at your tags that had dashes they have been replaced with underscores and if you add a tag with a dash it will not work.
It is weird because it cause problems for some wheel arrangements but not others 4-4-0 steel works but the ones that i mentioned 2-6-0 and 4-6-4 do not and are like I said. I think it may jest effect the ones that have a 6 or a 8 in the middle.
