Engine number four by trainman142 Engine number four by trainman142
This is an earlier locomotive design of mine, made for Independence day, the Clear Creek Central engine number Four, nicknamed the "Freedom train". Here is the history of the locomotive: C.C.C.R.R. engine number four is a small geared logging locomotive, built in completed on July fourth, 1868, just in time for the Independence day celebrations at the Jefferson City Courthouse. Designed by the famed locomotive designer Edward English(My grandfather) and built by the (fictional) Riverside ironwork's in Portland, Oregon. Intended for logging operations on rough track and tight curves, he locomotive was ahead of its time by at least four years. Extremely powerful for its size, the loco could haul five ten foot diameter logs without slipping. The engine was eventually retired to special runs, like the Independence day celebration at the courthouse, in which the loco pulls two gondola cars full of fireworks and other explosive devices. That's really all that there is to say, this engine doesn't have a very vivid past, unlike the others I have designed.

This engine will appear in a special picture honoring the day our country became independent from the British.

Does the engine work via a double-linked driveshaft like a shay?

No, the engine is connected to a jack shaft just below the main drive rod, and that has a small gear on it, witch in turn drives two larger gears mounted on the locos frame, and those gears drive two even larger gears on the wheels axles.

No, it's a small logging loco. I designed it to be able to negotiate extremely tight curves and extremely rough track, typical of nineteenth century logging railroads, although she could theoretically work in the shafts, if, of coarse, she isn't too tall to do so. :XD:

Your right on that last part she may seem small but just look at how tall the cab is :XD:

Yea, if you tried to run her in the shafts, you'd end up knock her cab roof and stack clean off!:XD:
