    Hi Russ,

    Thanks - I animate at sixteen frames so each and every part needs to be placed in sixteen precise positions to complete one revolution... There's a great deal of alignment work to get all the rods to line up in their proper positions... It takes some time to build and animate a set of running gear properly...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks - it's not so hard - the Reverser is basically your gear shift - start full on pulling back as you get moving - and the Regulator is your throttle... I recall reading something where real steam locomotives usually ran with the Regulator wide open as much as possible using the Reverser to control speed...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Russ,

    Thanks - as always - she’s coming together pretty quick - I’m trying to be a tad less stingy with polys - I just loaded her in the sim today for the first time - looks pretty good...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Russ, isn't the tender the tail? For now I think we can just settle on nose to belly button.
