If you can manage 4, you will be a god among builders. Haha, hope it works out, that'll be an impressive monster of an engine.
I've been tinkering with that thought from day one it's a bit of a hastle at the moment.

watch the video, that looks crazy, would be nice to see it going down a long streight with some trucks on it. very nice model.
I would love to have a pile of straights for it to open up in but being late to the 9v era I'm playing catch up and oly have that small oval I got from a garage sale. I could and probally will make it PF down the road but that would sacrifice some of the details at the moment with that battery box.

There is one of these (6944) in my hometown! You used to be able to go into the cab, but they stopped doing that after it was taken into the back to be worked on. I haven't seen it in some time and this brought many memorys flooding back of sitting in the cab and pretending I was driving that monster of an engine. Thanks for the detour down memory lane, and good luck!
Glad I could provide a trip down the past, I have never seen a "Big Jack" in person, but I would love to at some point they're a ways off from seeing living here in Oregon. I have family in Texas and plan to see #6913 once the Frisco museum has it out, or the next chance I get to go visit.

Very interesting I would like to see a video of that running
Here's one DDA40X
in my brickshelf folder of the testing of the truck design, I dont have a lot of 9v track currently waiting to see BBB's stuff or order a pile of ME's straights and larger curves when availiable.

Beautiful. And send that video to Lego; it screams, "Larger radius curves, please!"
I may at some point way down the line, when she's finished, and got a least one public show under her trucks!
