For all my watchers this is a one of a kind train that no one ever mentions and I mean ever! There is little information on this movie train from the Video Tall Tale a 1995 movie which flopped in the box office. The only parts of the movie worth watching in my opinion was the steam traction machines in the background and this beauty which the bad guy rode around in. Doctored up in movie shrouds and a totally dark gothic design, was a union pacific 2-8-0 operational number 618 when she was in operational status on loan from the Heber Valley historical railroad in Heber City Utah. The front end is truly ornate which is why I will be doing a front shot as well to show the unique *dodge ram* smokebox engraving.

total drawing time 5 hours

wow i had no idea they did something like this to 618 but to let you know the wheels are a little to big for 618 there not to be a critique just thought you might want to know but she does look amazing in this pic.

Thanks! Good luck to you chap. (also i noticed a way to do a good wheel judgement 618s wheels only go a couple inches above the pistons)

D: Was worried for a second. I know what movie this is in then, I thought it was pretty good. Rarely see this train though as you said in the desc.

Heheh, yeah its the one steam engine that I felt needed more than a little showing of her own. I hope this is enough for a start.

It is, just got to show the rest of the train just to show how unique it is. And sorry that I didn't properly ask the question.

I guess.

All I remember on the train though is that giant flat bed with that (what I thought) was a useless boulder.

I paused the movie for refs and under that *tarp* which looks like a boulder I was fooled at first is a traction engine aka steam tractor, then later that big passenger car on the end.

You think so? For a Gothic creation I for some reason think of this engine as the personal ride of the empress of the steameroid empire

I do, although I imagine it to maybe have some bright colors, like royal blue

Anyhow, I'm in chat again.
