Hello once again, I hope you all have been doing great.

Today I bring you one more fictional steam locomotive, the powerful Bison class locomotive. It started as a sketch >original sketch here< and I think it turnout out as quite a cool engine.

This project features the fictional Bison class, with cab and interior details, buit to 3:1 scale. I hope you like it!


This locomotive comprises of two duplex power units under the same boiler. Each unit has high and low pressure cylinders. Only the third from the front set of wheels is rigidly mount onto the locomotive. The forth frame is coupled to the latter and slides under the firebox and cab. The second unit pivots at it’s rear-most point to the boiler frame, sliding under it. The front set is the only one that doesn’t support any weight from the boiler, simply being coupled to the second. Even still she can’t take too much of sharp turns. Luckily the route she operates in, although with a very steep grade, is relatively straight. The firebox is feed by a screw mounted in the coal bunker and two big sanders provide the extra traction. Not a very fast locomotive but the 1,6m wheels and 70cm stroke provide much force, enough to easily carry 40 wagons up the climb, after which they will be coupled once again to a express freight engine for the last part of the route.
