Questions:

1. Only 9 traction wheels?
2. What is the turning radius?

Otherwise I want one.

Train from Man in the High Castle series: ...

I don't know the series but I like the look of that train. Less sure about the armament ... so decided to 'deNazify' it.

The only sensible guns on it were the turrets, the forward firing guns would be next to useless.

This different design is marked as Soviet Atomic Train too. Track gauge looks huge, only two floors, ... but those rods connecting wheels looks steam. ???

Comparing X12 with Big Boy



Perhaps some of you can help me:

1. I assume X12 is an articulated locomotive. In this drawing I see just an articulation between main locomotive and the cooling car.

2. Is it possible for head piece to be supported by three bogies? Should it be another articulation? Where? ahead control area? Between control area and the reactor?

3. What is the steam generator in control area? Is it the generator to heat the train (mentioned in text)?

Thank you in advance.
