I know you just built the water tower, and it does look very nice :thumbup: - but my eyes get drawn to the 4-8-2 "Mountain"-type locomotive, very handsome proportions! I presume it's "just" an HP model - did you build it, too? Any particular prototype?

Yes, you are right - it is HP model, 4-8-2 "Mountain".
I like it, although I had to eliminate 310-mm and even 353-mm radiuses on my layout - it needs 380-mm radiuses!
It is my biggest locomotive.

I did not build it; I purchased it (from Al Reibel, if I am not mistaken).

I also have 2-8-0 Consolidation (my first American TT-stuff), 4-6-2 Pacific (needs some wiring), and also 0-8-0 kit. Did not build it yet.

Nice job Arseny!
Now all you need is the TT engineer with his TT scale oil can walking along the sides and filling all the oil cups while the fireman is getting water- lots of maintenance needed on those big steamers!

You should be able to fit one of the TT scale engineers that I sold you in the cab, with some modifications, of course.
