Baldwin Locomotive Works #26

Unread postby CArailroader » Wed Apr 18, 2018 12:50 am

My latest WIP, Baldwin Locomotive Works #26. Currently homed at Steamtown NHP in Scranton, PA, the #26 is currently a very nice green with white lettering. Due to the limitations of the texture files and how they are used on the model, the green did not work and I decided to go with it's earlier paint scheme, black with white lettering.

I'm still trying to figure out how to make the two digit numbering work correctly on the cab and the front number plate. I sent a PM to Chris a couple days ago as I know he said he was able to get it to work, but does anyone else know the fix by chance? Also I changed the bin so that the whistle is a single chime hooter, using a separate whistle control bin. I'm waiting for permission to include the whistle with the repaint as it isn't mine.

Very nice so far! May I suggest that you make the paint a little bit green?

As I said in the first post, the green doesn't work on the model. There are too many textures that apply to different things on the engine that don't need to be green and it looks out of place. Thus, I went with the black and white.

When Steamtown originally opened in the 90's and the 26 ran back then. It was originally painted black and white. It is still correct to make it like that.
