New Orleans Cannonball with 2-10-4 "Texas" steam engine
HOWEVER: My Brick Railway Systems version runs from Chicago but takes a detour to go to several stops not used by the real train, such as Springfield IL, and St. Louis, MO whereupon it rejoins the real route at Cairo, IL.
This steam locomotive (number 6297) pulls the New Orleans Cannonball on my layout. It is a 2-10-4, which is called a Texas type. There is one of this type on display at the St. Louis Museum of Transportation. It is Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe number 5011, and it's where you can ring the bell from the cab. (It is located in the red-roofed Roberts Building next to the trolley stop.)
NOTE: The pistons have two parts disconnected from the model.... they work in real life, but not in LDD. Also, the numbers "6297" go on the sides of the cab and rear of the tender, while "BRICK RAILWAY SYSTEMS" goes on the sides of the tender in printed 1x1 tiles.
