    Yes I know theres a big boy and challenger in the game but would anyone want a new improved big boy and challenger? The current ones are not the greatest but better than nothing, however I would want to see a better quality as in psychics, sounds, and better textures. Also if dovetail or anyone did made a new one I hope the number on the front and tender will not be different.

    Most of the US steam locomotives could use a revamp, especially the Big Boy, and Challenger. The NKP Berk, and SP GS-4 could use one aswell. Perhaps the Pennsy K4, but not as much, maybe only from an audio stand point.

    perhaps, I mean I don't have the challenger, but I do have the Big Boy and let me tell you: I do not like the way the whistle works on it! I am thinking about duplicating the whistle control file from #844 so that I can do some whistle quilling. But yeah There needs to be new Union Pacific steam

    I totally agree. I'd like both steamers. Also, could we get UP's 4-12-2s? Those three cylinder giants would be really awesome.

    Yeah, we really need some of the older steam locomotives to get a revamp. Some people may call Dovetail lazy, but if they're turning an old, somewhat lackluster product into a new, feature rich product I don't think many would complain.

    The upgrade could include the #4014 Big Boy in its restored form as well as the #3985 Challenger.

    In the Youtube comment section of the Transcontinental Railroad Anniversary livestream, Smokebox responded to someone asking if he would make Big Boy 4014. He said that 4014 was coming next!

    Yes, he talked about it in the stream itself as well, somewhere in the last 20 minutes.

    Awesome! I feel like if he did made one anyone who owns the RSC Big boy would get a discount. Just like with Solider Summit- Salt Lake City extension

    Why on earth would someone owning the existing one, made by someone else entirely, get a discount for a new one made by me???
