The hard part about building steamers is getting 'em to go around curves!:tongue:
After that they're pretty easy.

I wanted this to have the feel of a early railroading era engine. A newly built line's first engine, for example. Maybe 1840's-ish?

The front is solid and the back truck has to swivels to allow sideways motion on the curves

Nice job, captures the look of an early steamer well.  Do you have any larger close up shots of the way you've articulated the rear truck?  I can't quite tell from the picture.
