|I also like the fact that you've resisted the urge to over-weather the loco:
A powerful, modern beauty like this would be the pride of both the company, and the engineer.
If you look at the people watching the Uintah mallet in the video, they were in awe of the 2-6-6-2s, and rightfully so.
They were modern engineering marvels, hauling loads that previously required double, or triple heading.
Nothing else like them was ever built for other narrow gauges in the US.
Now the Mogollon Railway has something similar to help haul its loads.
On a completely random and irrelevant tangent-
you could use the front porch of the loco to parade the bodies of those who have committed crimes against the Mogollon,
i.e. sabotage, attempting to get a free ride etc...kind of like Lord Humungus in Mad Max:
I'll drink more coffee and if I come up with something better, or more random, will be sure to post...
