Didn't think I'd see the Friendship Express actually shown with a tender and piston rods. Or even the correct fuel for that matter.

Very nice drawing! However, I don't know if you did this on purpose or not but the couplers are the wrong kind for that era locomotive. Instead of the knuckle type couplers they should be link and pin. (Just putting my opinion out there.) Otherwise very nice drawing.
Very swag.

Yeah i know the used link and pin, but when couplers came around the installed couplers on these locos.

Love those civil war era American locomotives. They look like they've just bolted anything and everything on that they could get their paws on.

It was more like PIMP my train! Pin stripping, 42in rims, and brass! Lots and lost of brass! A they were pretty big and very powerful as far as old steams trains go. They were like the muscle cars of the early steam trains!

The Euro trains, blue....green.....and sometimes red paint.

Are you sure your not a brit? cuz you sound very american!

UK Southern Railway has this: farm9.staticflickr.com/8090/85…

US Southern Railway responds with this: newsdesk.si.edu/sites/default/…

(Also, 42" wheels would be tiny for a passenger locomotive--the one in 2nd link had 73")

42 inch rims! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH! 'DAS SO FLY!

I am a Brit: I wish I was American. The UK is boring and everything I like is very expensive, when compared to the US. Only downside would be that classic Land Rovers are virtually non-existent in the US.

Well, that video's a little bit unfair, 'cause the Cherokee had bigger tyres and the driver of the Defender didn't seem to be trying very hard.

You are right though. The Willys Jeep started it all. From it what are now the Wrangler, the Hummer, the Defender and the Jimny all evolved.

My little truck, in fact, is one of the in-between stages for the Japanese line of vehicles that grew from the Willys. You'd know it as a Suzuki Samurai, but I've got a version that wasn't sold in the US.

the one that didn't flip over all the time?
Reply
:iconedelroark:
Edelroark Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2012
Don't get me started on that.

The flipping over thing with the Suzuki's was a false rumour produced by the Consumer Union. They wanted to make the little Japanese 4x4 look bad because it wasn't American and there was nothing else like the SJ/Samurai available at the time. It was the ONLY small 4x4 available new in the 80s.

After the footage was found of the tests the CU conducted were shown to a court along with all kinds of other evidence, the CU had to admit that the high roll-over risk was false and ended up paying Suzuki millions of dollars.

I ref'd the vid for the type of engine, so similar to what you drew, not the paint job. What was Jupiter's original paint scheme, anyway? Got a reference pic?
