    Took a while to get through QnA didn't it? But I'm highly anticipating this release, as well as the new patches for the other Smokebox locos in the pipeline.

    Seeing this developed from a single driving wheel 2 years ago to this work of art was a similar feeling to following the updates on 4014's restoration itself. I cannot wait to give this a go for the first time!

    I have Sherman Hill. I might have to get this. The Big Boys are just amazing, not to mention massive.

    Not one for me, I’m not really a fan of American stuff, but I watched the Stream last night and was so impressed. The quality and detail in this are stunning.

    That is because Smokebox puts a lot time and attention into what he developes, as it was noted on the stream it took him 2 years to make this.

    You can tell a lot of time and care was put into it. I was completely blown away by it. Didn’t realise TS2021 was capable of such things.

    They said there will be another stream featuring it, so my guess is next Thursday. But that’s a pure guess based on it not being this week and releases normally being Thursdays.

    Wow! My best TS experiences have been with Smokebox locos. I will be back on TS for this.

    And, a beautiful whistle that is reproduced perfectly. Sweet!

    I don't even want to think about what the technical page will be like after this release.With dtg record of problem plagued releases the bigboy could be a technical nightmare.

    It's not made by DTG, but by Smokebox, who is one of the best steam locomotive developers on the market.
