This model is an Americanized version of Scotnick's Thomas & friends model "Stanley" with some new running gear provided by Hunter Dobbs. LDD file included!
About this creation
The engine features a new headlight on top of the smokebox and is a little longer than the last version by about four studs. The pistons (hopefully) will work in real life, as I messed with and extended Hunter Dobbs design to include a third axle. The engine is going to be numbered 4990, with the number going on the saddle tank and the letters BRS going on the rear of the locomotive, right between the two red stripes on the coal bunker. NOTE: This model requires custom Big Ben Bricks small steam engine drivers, as in 4 flanged and 2 blind. The gears seen here are placeholders and will NOT work on track!

Background:

Built in 1922 by H.K. Porter, this steam locomotive is of a saddle tank design, (that means it carries the water over-the-top of the boiler in tanks, kinda like a saddle on a horse) as part of an order for 25 engines, numbered 4975 to 5000. The class was built for yard work, though some were sent out onto the main lines to haul commuter trains when the need arose. This engine class features red stripes on the sides and over the tanks on top of the boiler.



The rear of the locomotive.
