maybe you've maybe you haven't but i thought it was worth a mention because it is the first model of the famous union pacific DdA40X's.

the DDA40X was two engines put onto a single chassis, it is the biggest and most powerful diesel ever

any ways check out this train.

That is huge! You did a great job there. I have no doubt it needs both 9V motors to move along. I guess you have to make quite a bit of room around the corners? Your other MOCs are great too. Keep it up!

He's off to a good start--if I can ever find the old drawings I prepped and feed 'em into MLCAD, I was designing a 10-wide, 99-stud-long, four-9v-motor model of this behemoth.

Two 3000hp GP40's on a common frame, with a 10% uprating thanks to that massive radiator section. (If you were like "Huh?" when I mentioned exaggerating GP40X radiators, basically imagine this thing sawed in half.)
