Emerald Express 4-8-2 Mountain steam loco (real world v3) . LDD file included! . The 4-8-2 Mountain - type loco you see here was originally cobbled together from my 2-6-0 Mogul and a lot of extra parts. This is version three of the engine, and features a revised boiler inspired by set 79111. (Constitution Train Chase) This loco has a fictional backstory: This 4-8-2 (4 leading, 8 drivers, and 2 trailing wheels) Mountain type locomotive numbered 6437 was built in the mid 1930's by Baldwin Locomotive Works. The type 6437 belongs to was designed for both freight duty and passenger traffic and as such were not streamlined, thus cutting the top speed down to about 95 MPH. The Emerald Express, pulled by a overworked 2-6-0 since 1917, was upgraded with 4-8-2 number 6437 in 1936 when another coach was added to the train, and was painted a dark green to match the heavy-weight rolling stock. The words "BRICK RAILWAY SYSTEMS" go on the tender in printed 1 x 1 tiles, while the number 6437 goes on the cab sides in the same way. In my fictional LEGO universe, the engine pulls the Emerald Express starting from Chicago (Illinois), with stops at Springfield (Illinois), St. Louis (Missouri), Memphis (Tennessee) before terminating at New Orleans (Louisiana).
