    This is my favorite engine so far from the Sava Collection. Colors are superb, and the auxilery tender gives this engine some major gravitas. Excellent picture too.

    Boy Thats a beautiful engine! this inspired me to make an engine somewhat like this, And i finished it last week. Its a yellow steam engine with the SNOT technique. With an 0-6-0 tender. :)

    I'm pretty sure that this is the photo that officially caused the end of my dark ages. :-)

    Are you going to re-make it to be a 2012 modern day 8 wide version?
  • Tony Sava PRO 3y

    I've considered it many times. On the one hand I'd love to do it because it would make her a better performer, and it would provide me the opportunity (and space) to upgrade her to Power Functions - allowing me to run her more often on TexLUG layouts.

    On the other hand she'd end up a near clone of the TSRR #500. While they are different engines certainly, they have enough in common that construction would be very similar, including wheel arrangement and general dimensions. It does not appear, however, that her boiler significantly increases in size like the #500.

    On top of that this locomotive marks the turning point for me, when I went from building very primitive models to where I started really caring deeply about form and details. Where I started really putting some great SNOT to work. By redesigning her, while she would be improved, the personal historical significance would be lost.

    Tony Sava For the first problem, the front of her in now light grey, and has the bell in the front, so they wouldn't look the same for the most part. For the second problem, another engine close to that would be a good idea. Like N&W 475 (which I highly recomend), BR&W 60, or a Fictional Texas State Locomotive, maybe a small one like a 0-6-0.
  • Tony Sava PRO 3y

    Modelrailroader46Just as a point of clarity, are you suggesting I build another locomotive so I can upgrade #425, or in lieu of doing so?

    And for the record I hate the new bell/light configuration they've made to her. I've tried to accept and like it but I just can't.
  • Modelrailroader46 3y

    Tony Sava You could build another if you want to, and this would not be to replace 425, just thought of an all black locomotive since you have all these following colors:

    grey, usa color, red, green, blue, (and 400, but she has a vanderbuilt tender which is cool looking).

    It's up to you if you want to make it, all your locomotives are great.
