My streamlined 4-8-2 is finally finished! it was inspired by the South Australian Railways 520 class 4-8-4 and the hover mono-rail engine from the Legend of Korra TV Show, as described to me by a friend. This loco features a detailed cab and a Art Deco look.
About this creation
Fictional background info:
These twenty four 4-8-2 (4 leading, 8 drivers, and 2 trailing wheels) Mountain – type locomotives numbered 6840 – 6864 were built in the mid 1920's by Lima locomotive Works. One of these engines is 6847, which was shrouded in a streamlined casing shortly after being built and is painted in reddish brown with a fluted black side stripe on the engine and black box stripe on the tender to keep it in line with the passenger cars of the 909 National Limited, it's permanent assignment.
The tender spells out the name of the railroad it is owned by. In this case, it's Brick Railway Systems.
The cab of the loco has a 1980's vintage 2 x 2 black slope, and a few more modern gauges. Also, the firebox door cover is actually from a Star Wars TIE Fighter wing!
