I'm almost surprised no one has made this locomotive for Trainz yet:

Or one of two of it's halves:

For those who don't know what this is (probably everyone here), this is the first locomotive to use the Franco-Crosti preheater system (as indicated in the title). It was built around 1932 to test the system and was built and tested in Belgium. More details here: http://www.aqpl43.dsl.pipex.com/MUSEUM/LOCOLOCO/francocrosti/francocrosti.htm
If anyone is taking requests, I would like to request this bad boy.

You're welcome! I think if I ever start making content, I'll make some of those mysterious wonders on the website. Heaven knows most of the stuff on there deserve to be Trainzified. :hehe:

These locos are far from ugly in my opinion. But if you insist...
