Very nice drawings Carlos.

Note in the design there are only 9 traction wheels out of 40? Really.  :icon_crap:

How to stick your bum out  ;D

But possibly one change they DID consider but the British car-buyer might see it as unacceptable.

Actually the back looks a bit like a German design of that time (was it Opel?). >:D

Very nice.  It looks like you're using an early EMD E-series nose as later E-series locomotives shared nose contours with the F-series locomotives.  Given the problems both steam turbine and gas turbine locomotives had, I do't know how successful this would have been, but I like the look.

Going by what seems to be standard practice with three axial trucks (at least for EMD and ALCO), the front and rear acles on each truck would be powered, giving you 10 out of 15 axles being powered.  I can see going with three axial trucks to better spread the laod.  When ALCO made some RS engines for the railroad from Iran into the USSR during WW II, they had to switch from two axial trucks to three axial trucks to get the loading down to what hte track could handle.  The railroad was carrying lend-lease supplies from a port in IRn through the mountains to the southern USSR and they had to switch to Diesel-electric locomotives because steam locomotives were carrying too much load to fuel and water to move enough material.

How about a cross of the Big Boy with Southern Pacific's cab-forward designs?  For a more elegant version, since the Big Boys were built by ALCO, instead of the vertical front that the Southern Pacific used, use the cabin and front end from an ALCO PA (IMHO, the PA has to be one of the most aesthetically appealing early deisel-electric locomotives).

I took a [first] Simca 1200 coupé (Bertone design, iirc) and a [second] Chysler 180 (same manufacturer) to produce an [last] elegant sedan (imho) with structure from Chrysler and aesthetics from Simca.

All constant scale.
