This is my CNJ I5 now . It will wait for the I4 to catch up before final detail, paint, and lettering. They will be done together.

My latest project is making a Lehigh Valley 4-4-0c, E-27 class, locomotive. This is the class that was assigned to originally pull the Black Diamond.

Interesting looking. It appears to be top heavy, how is it on curves?

Mike you have just described almost every locomotive ever made. The weight is mainly on the drivers. If it was front heavy the rear drivers would be off of the track. As to side weight the weight is balanced over the drivers, and supported by the front 4 wheel truck.

In addition to what toptrain stated........that's why the outer rail of mainline curves are "super-elevated". Cheers
We always learn far more from our own mistakes, than we will ever learn from another's advice.
The greatest place to live life, is on the sharp leading edge of a learning curve.
Lead me not into temptation.....I can find it myself!

What's about Crampton locomotives?
Just the same fear created this breed of locos in the middle of the 19th century.
