PTTCo 2-6-2ST by simulatortrain PTTCo 2-6-2ST by simulatortrain
This one was pretty fast, only took me a little over an hour.

I couldn't decide what to letter it for, so I figured my Potomac Tie & Timber Co. would probably run something like this. Some parts are old, some new, but it's an altogether cool engine. I guess it has enough junk on it to be a believable logging engine. I put chain about everywhere I could, and there's a toolbox and some other stuff. I couldn't find room for much more XD! She's worked hard, but her crew keeps her clean. Probably a turn-of-the-century build date.

(The firebox turned out pretty deep, ignore that please XD)

The level of detail on this piece is awesome. Though I always find it interesting that there is such a gap between the drivers and the boiler on these smaller locomotives (being used to seeing less of a gap in the large ones myself). Could you perhaps shed some light on this matter? +fav.

Probably a combination of small drivers taking up less room, and a decision to have this look.

Nice, Adam! (I love how this engine, if by your standards only, actually is "clean." :D) Also loving the chains hanging from the running boards. I hardly know whether to consider them incredibly industrial or incredibly sinister. XD

What be the cord wrapped around the stack base?

It was hard to keep it that way, believe me XD!

The cord is a hose for the pipe also hanging under the tank to syphon water out of a stream or something.

So the firebox is fine? Or is it still slightly deep?

ohh no

deep grates are beneficial to engines that must burn both coal and wood in their lifetime without being modified. sometimes, 103 burned wood, whereas other days, she burned coal.
