This is an old project which I recently realized I neglected to post here.
This is my bolt for bolt replica of a PRR T1, recreated on behalf of the T1 Trust, a non-profit seeking to build a new T1 class locomotive to resurrect the lost class. The Trust provided me with all the surviving technical drawings, allowing for a truly perfect replica of that wonderful design. If you’re into this sort of thing, check them out here.
You can find additional renders, an animated flyby and breakdowns on my artstation here.
Fully rigged, animator friendly and 100% accurate. Everything is there, and everything works. From the Franklin B2 valve gear to the finest points of the suspension, which you can see demonstrated in the animated Artstation reel.
Thanks to the T1 Trust, Think Tank Training Center and the West Coast Historical Society for their respective generosity on behalf of me and my silly project.
