As Oleg would say: too early to say now
Railway will follow ground damage model rules.

AFAIK even a locomotive can have a "cockpit" in SoW, but I may be wrong.

Thanks! I am much honoured...

I think you could probably use the "Nord" plate as well (true also for 230 and 231 for instance) as it means the ex-"Nord" company network to become the NORD SNCF network, which is the one of interest for SoW BoB.
It is perfectly possible that not all the loco got the "SNCF" logo plate in time for some reason.

I also believe that the registration shown "040 D 245" designated an ex G8.1 loco belonging to the EST SNCF network.
The NORD network got also G8.1 but SNCF-registered as "2-040 D 1 (to 212)" and 501 to 555.

On the front marking the region designator ("2" here) is usually missing.

Amically

PS What kind of combat flight simulation is this where we exchange about the finer points of loco registration?

That's what I do for the last five years now, however first time for a non-german loco
Thanks for your answers!

I know this is going even farther into the world of railways than some here would care to see, but I have been a fan of my own country's (US) railroads since I was very small and saw some of the last steam locos in service in my part of the US.

I am always amazed that so many freight types without leading trucks made it into passenger service in Europe. Leading trucks (bogey wheels) are necessary for high speed stability and ability to negotiate curves at the speeds typical of passenger (or high speed freight) operation.

The 0-8-0 type was first built in the US in 1844 and was relegated to slow freight work only. In the latter part of the 20th. century this type was mostly used as a switcher (shunter) for yard work.

Sorry for "derailing" the conversation.



Great work you are doing Foo'bar.

In Germany many of the G8/G8.1 later got a leading truck because of that and beeing renamed to BR 56.
The SNCF loco I'm currently building had a max speed of 60 km/h. It came to France because of reparation from Germany after WW1 by some hundreds. When SoW once will face eastern front I plan to make a german BR 55 loco from it. In WW2 it is one of the most german built steamers ever.

Wow, that's only 37mph. Quite slow. No need for a leading truck then.

Very interesting.

60 km/h max is fast enough for freight trains because most of freight cars weren't allowed to drive faster than that. Of course for a passenger train it is too slow. But you have to keep in mind that the prussian G8 is a very old lady. It was built first in 1902 and 60 km/h was quite fast then

At least a small update from here, the french steamer LOD0 has almost been finished. Some small parts still have to be added.

All still WIP, but you can imagine how she will be looking like:

Can't wait to shoot some holes in that.

I just hope that the visual damage model actually shows steam escaping from bullet holes in the boiler, as it should.
