About Southern Pacific streamlined P-10 class Pacific type steam locomotive by zephyr1934

After the success of the 1937 Daylight on the coastal route the Southern Pacific added several more Daylights on other routes. Demand outpaced locomotive production so in 1941 SP streamlined three P-10 Pacifics from 1923 with skirts and skyline casings to look like the GS class locomotives (minus a few wheels) to pull the train. These Pacifics stand out among the other Daylight locomotives in the fact that they have the cylindrical Vanderbilt tenders. The locomotive houses all the electronics (battery box, 2x PF L-motors, and IR receiver discretely tucked behind the stack). The cab is detailed, including sight glass, brake stand, Johnson bar and throttle, but perhaps the biggest feat is the fact that the long engine will take R40 curves (though I can't help it from looking silly when it does). The build includes custom stickers and rods from TrainedBricks.com

Note that last year I presented the full consist of the 1941 San Joaquin Daylight for BTA, while the train included this locomotive, at that time I did not submit the locomotive separately.
