    Default 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

    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
