    I just got a special edition of Classic Trains Fantastic 4-8-4s. There were 36 railroads that had 4-8-4s. And each one had their own special version. So lets see your 4-8-4! Either straight off the shelf or custom. Here is my C&O 4-8-4. They called them Greenbriars.

    My two remaining 4-8-4's are the pride of the fleet. Two masterpieces from Tomball Locomotive Works, ATSF 3771 and 3772

    "And each one had their own special version."

    Well, sort of...

    The Central of Georgia's eight "Big Apples" were patterned after SP GS2s but resembled some of the Santa Fe Northerns. But, unlike the ATSF and SP Northerns they were pure freight beasts.

    Great thread!

    Boy those Santa Fe 4-8-4s were real behemoths.

    OK, well they were all behemoths but the Santa Fe ones just looked more behemothy.

    :D
