    Mr. Big Stuff - 2.0 - B&M R1A Mountain

    Hi Folks,

    RE: Boston and Maine R-1-A.

    I'm about done with my shape - more than doubled the polys on my old locomotive from years ago. Converted from an R-1-D to the R-1-A.

    Looks good. I used to live in Massachusetts and have a warm spot in my heart for the B&M. :-)

        Hi Steve,

        Yeah - I think they had a pretty cool steam fleet. This was their biggest and best - it was also one of the largest Mountains ever made. They wanted the performance of a Northern without the weight or cost. A Northern would have required track and bridge updates. I also like the fact they stuck with Pacifics until the end of steam. Paul Charland’s CT River Route inspired this locomotive. Thanks.

        Regards,
        Scott

          Hi…

          Thanks! Yeah - LOL - I’ve been doing this for a while - one of these days I need to give Blender an earnest try.

                  As always, Scott, absolutely beautiful. And does that video evoke the diversity of roads and car types in the steam-diesel era!

                    Hi Dave,

                    Thanks - - - like you - I prefer colorful traffic emblazoned with proud heralds representing roads from far flung corners of the country - to the spartan drab utilitarian pallet of the modern era.

                    Regards,
                    Scott

                        Hi Jim,

                        Thanks - you've been around since my earliest forays into modeling.

                        Always a pleasure - sir.

                        Regards,
                        Scott

                            I sure enjoyed that video, Scott! Especially the sound effects.

                            Used to have lunch after church every week within sight of that spot.

                              Hi Jim,

                              Yeah - I’ve placed track a few times on Rich’s LHR from Hudson Yard to Martins Creek - while I can do it - I’m just not good at it. Track laying is probably my weakest skill - I just don’t have the patience for all the small track bits. Some day…

                              Regards,
                              Scott
