Out of all the knowledgeable people on this forum and their ability to speak their minds not one of you made the comment that my exhaust pipes were coming out of the generator compartments not the engine compartments. 



I noticed it about 5 minutes after I posted it but left it to see if anyone would comment on the error.  You disappoint me grass hopper. :'(

not true Bill. i really didnt see any problem with the way they were before for having a bit of fun, but will do just fine the new way too.

BTW, the generators are pretty much directly below the 'real' exhaust and partially behind those areas colored light blue in your renders. most locomotives are set up that way. normally the air compressor and oil coolers and other equipment are in the rear area (or in this locomotive's case the middle) under the radiators. most of the time at least some of this area is open, and can be used for storage of extra parts like MU connections or repair items etc.

if you really want to get technical, the pipes probably would be too low to reach the manifolds, and totally negate the turbocharger anyway... see didnt that take all the fun out of it?


here, a gift:
