A perfect rendition of a mythical locomotive! I almost had the opportunity to view it with this exact arrangement (yellow cars included), yet it unfortunately broke down... I still was able to see another 2-4-4 which was replacing it. Anyways, great job, and congrats on winner of the best train!

awesome, how much does it weigh?
Well now that's a good question...according to the BrickStore Software, it is over 550 grams (almost 1.5 pounds). That doesn't include the Tender, which probably weighs about the same. I'll weigh the real thing tomorrow and let you know for sure.
Sorry to keep bugging ya but once you had them on the glossy photo paper; do you glue them on or how are you applying them? The only reason I ask is I'm not happy with the sticker on MOC and I'm very impressed with yours.

What did you use for the decals? I tried Avery 'Clear' Sticker Paper but it doesn't look as clear as yours.
I use Glossy Photo Paper and spend at least an hour matching the colors on my ink jet printer. The red letters are the color of red bricks, and the yellow between, is the color of yellow bricks...likewise for the black around the white letters.

What is the piece you used for the front boiler? Now go and try a BIG BOY!!!
I'm assuming your talking about the 6x6 inverted dish? It is the same found on the front of the Emerald Night, just in light bluish gray.
Big Boy...I try not to build things that have already been done. There are lots of excellent Big Boys out there. Check this one out: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jayhurst/sets/72157620435979105/
Thanks for the compliments!
HA! I tried one of these and failed miserably... Yours is truly incredible. What is the piece you used for the front boiler? Now go and try a BIG BOY!!! Incredible, absolutely, and magically, purely amazing.
