This real world based loco is now in 6 studs wide form! LDD file included!
About this creation
I just ordered the parts to re-make my 8 wide Southern Pacific Daylight loco into a 6 wide model. I used the same ingenious idea for the smoke-box as Eurobricks user Electricsteam did for his Pneumatic locomotive, but with my own styling with curved parts instead of the more straight-edged cheese slopes.
I managed to keep most of the details and even added a crew walkway from the front of the loco to the cab.
While the loco stayed the same length, the tender has been shortened significantly to better fit in with the rest of my 6 - wide steam fleet. It still is supposed to say "SOUTHERN PACIFIC" on it where the studs on the tender are. The number "4460" goes on the cab.
