That's how they should all smoke!. That is a seriously nice traditional layout with a lot of track switches. Did you see the custom made Gilbert style 45 degree crossing at 1min50sec and again at 4min30sec? There is also a Legacy base visible. I wonder if he is using the Cab2 to control the track voltage for running the trains remotely.
Check out this beast. A northern has 4 drivers on each side.
A 4-8-4 locomotive. This is a video of a custom made 4-12-2.
6 drivers on each side. I would think he used 2 locos to make 1.
One of the commenters got all over the maker for butchering
the loco. I think it is cool and can not believe how well it runs.
I can not believe it can run on original Gilbert curves. My northerns don't even like Gilbert track. That's why I am trying to
acquire K-Line wide curve track. There is some K-Line track on that layout but looks like some Gilbert curves also.
Same layout as above video.
I think that 4-12-2 qualifies as a Frankenstein engine. I mean that in a good way.
I was watching it's video to try and tell where the boiler(s) were put together, I can't tell.
He did a wonderful job with it.
Joe Deger is the man who made the 4-12-2. He has made quite a few custom engines from Flyers. Here's a link to his site with some information on them. I believe he also designed a custom smoke unit but haven't been able to find where I saw it. The layout(Jeff's) has a lot of wide radius track, maybe that's why its hard to find and pricey! http://sgaugers.org/TD/TD_JD.html
