    Post Dm&ir yellowstone: Does anybody have it?

    I have been dying to see/run one in MSTS, let alone any train simulator, along with matching cars. Please post leads!

    MSTS DMIRR #238. UP Big Boys and the Duluth, Missabe, and Iron Range Rail Road Yellowstone mallets have much in common, so that North American Locomotive Work's 4-8-8-4 gives a good basis for a similar DMIRR 4-8-8-2 locomotive. Reskin by Phil Voxland of NALW Big Boy (Jens-Christian Baerenz, and others)

    You could re-paint my EM-1 which is almost an exact match for what you want.

    MSTS B&O EM-1 #7607 Steam Locomotive. The last purchase from Baldwin, these 2-8-8-4 engines lasted until the 1960s. Worked most of the B&O divisions. Original model by Allen Norton. Original modelling and textures by Chris Van Wagoner.

    I think repainting the EM-1 would be a better way to go, since the file that frankoburns suggested is just a reskinned Big Boy with the 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement. However, I think a modification of the .s file would be needed in order to remove the drumhead, if there is one. The file that frankoburns suggested could be used for the tender. If you search "duluth missabe and iron range" on the file library, the last file is an entire trainset including two SD9's, 12 ore cars (6 loaded, 6 empty), and a caboose. Then we stumble upon a problem: What whistle did the DM&IR Yellowstones use?

    The Yellowstones had their smokebox mounted on the front of the engine. It would take a lot of work to replicate that.

    All steam engines do?... (asides SP Cab forwards and a few Italian steamers) Did you mean Air pumps?... because they are on the front, in front of the smoke box. http://www.steamlocomotive.com/yellowstone/dmir225p.jpg
