Awesome mod! Great starter train that adds flavor to the early game.

This handsome little devil is quick on the flats, a great starter loco for passengers. (I use your Baldwin when more traction is required.)

Excellent! Beautiful (your picture doesn't do it justice) and realitsticallly functional - thank you!

@modelcitizen | Really? That's great! Looking forward to seeing more steam locomotives. Well, I meant the whole steam era actually. Would be nice to see some Northern, Berkshire, Pacific type locomotives, especially based from the United States.

Regarding the Baldwin 0-6-0 tender, I'm excited to see it when it is released!

Cheers,

@ Expression - Thanks and yes, I am planning on making more steam locomotives (if by locomotives you mean early steam that is available when you start an 1850 game). I've taken a bit of a break from contect creation at the moment, but when I come back, I've got a custom built tender for the Baldwin 0-6-0 to finish.

Hey there,

I really like your mods, all of them actually. I have a question out of interest, are you planning on more steam locomotives for this game?

@A Rather Jolly Brakeman - You're talking about the "grasshopper" locomotive? I'm hoping that TpF2 will have an 1830 start date. I also would love to see this locomotive in the game.

@M4 - Working on a custom Baldwin tender for the 0-6-0 now. Slowly getting there.

Would it be possible to have the tender released as a standalone wagon? It has the right size and scale to be run behind the 0-6-0 that lacks one.
