4012 Big Boy

Postby JoeMalinchak » Tue May 09, 2017 5:07 am

I started working on my Big Boy. I am very fortunate to have a real Big Boy # 4012 at the Steam Town museum that is around a 40 minute drive from my home. I went and took lots of photos for reference, and I know that I will be taking many more. It will be a very challenging, but fun model to design. I made a four wheel chassis to test, and see how it runs. I only used one bogie for power pick up, so it is running sporadically right now. I am going to test it with the tender I am making for my new 4-6-2 locomotive. I am hoping it will run on the 120mm radius track.

Joe.

Good luck with this Joe. It would be great to see a T gauge Big Boy. There is someone on the T gauge Facebook page who has done the outside wheel motion for a Big Boy. Don't know what has happened about that, it's sometime since I looked at it, and this forum actually.
