Train - Class 166

I've finally got around to creating a locomotive for my world. This is the first vehicle I've created with bogies (as all the other vehicle blueprints I've used were referenced as fixed axle vehicles). It's slightly more complex setting up the bogies but nothing too difficult.

Now that this loco is complete, I realise in hindsight that I chose a tricky loco to stylise. As the real train is a simple tube with very little in the way of features, I found it difficult to add character to this super-deformed model. I've simply exaggerated the headlights, body width, shortened the length (by a long way) and gave the loco a beefed up exhaust. I'll add more in-game screenshots later.
