    Default WM 2-8-0

    Is there any locomotive in Trainz that looks like this? I've been looking for a heavy 2-8-0 with centered headlight with no luck. Most of the 2-8-0's in Trainz have tall smokestacks or high headlights.

    Trainz Forge has a 2-8-2, a reskin on Ben Neal's, in WM colors. It's not quite the same, but it's an acceptable substitute until you find a proper WM 2-8-0.

    Nasty bump! Is it "Mountain Thunder" or a prototypical WM 2-8-0?

    Well, that'd do nicely, if of course you get the time.

    K&L Trainz has the Western Maryland logo with coming soon over it. Maybe good ol' Steve Lerro has something up his sleeve sometime in the future???

    It's a real H9, and should come in several versions, including but not limited to as-built, footboard pilot/non-jacketed smokebox some of them had, as shown in my picture below, and with the Worthington feedwater heater.

    I just figured I'd go ahead and render it since I hadn't done that for a while anyway. Obviously I have work with rods and valve gear yet to do, but other than that it's mostly under-cab and in-cab detail, plus just a bit more piping. Really not all that much left to do with it, if I could ever remember to work on it. I'm really looking forward to textures.



    The tender is finished, here's a shot in TS12:



    It has an animated water hatch, though that is not yet set up, and a working auger, in case you ever let your coal get down low enough to see it:

    Thanks, and I really do need to get it done. Something about that huge lack of WM steam...

    Is that the Bessemer font from railsimstuff.com i see? Not to be a rivet-counter, but it doesn't look right. Here's the real one:



    It's okay the way it is though. Looks close to perfect so far, Adam.

    That is amazing!

    The untextured model looks like it's made out of plastic which is really cool.

    The lettering on 734 is, shall we say, far from perfect. I did indeed use the Bessemer font to create my lettering. I do want to rework it a little to be just that much more correct, but it will work for now. Compare it to the real thing:

    That's not a photo of a locomotive that was ever used on the real Western Maryland Railroad. No. 734 is an ex-Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad locomotive which the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad rebuilt, painted up and basically gave a "face lift". The scenic railroad has been using it as a "stand in" for an actual Western Maryland 2-8-0 steam locomotive for a number of years.

    That is AMAZING work there Adam! The detail is unbelievable. Quick question though, for whoever may know, why did the Western Maryland (at least from what are shown), use such large tenders on these smaller engines? The tender with "734" is almost, if not, longer than the engine itself. Just curious.
