Big boy model 2-730,dcc model trains with sound,subway trains at penn station - Review

Union Pacific’s 4-8-8-4 Big Boy, coal fired, steam locomotive was one of the largest steam locomotives ever produced and now you can print one yourself. Paul Fischer recreated the Big Boy in SolidWorks and then used his Maker Bot Replicator 2 to print the whole thing.
The massive printed locomotive required 16 rolls of MakerBot True Black PLA filament and two 2-oz  tubes of Zap super glue to produce. Fischer has already used his skills to recreate a number of German World War II tanks, including the infamous King Tiger.


If you’re an experienced model maker or you just want to have a go at building one, the 3D files for the Big Boy can be found on Thingiverse.
The Big Boy fleet totalled twenty five locomotives that were used primarily in the Wyoming Division to haul freight over the Wasatch range between Green River, Wyoming and Ogden, Utah4 wheel arrangement.
He decided he wanted to undertake a more ambitious task and then ordered a copy of the original blueprints Union Pacific used back in the 1940’s.
It is worth noting that the project is not for the faint of heart or those who have limited time.
