New 2-10-2 by Atticus-W New 2-10-2 by Atticus-W
So what does Tetris, Heavy Weapons Guy, ten-coupled steam locomotives, and constructivism have in common...


Inspired by lyrics of improvisational lyrics-master Alexander Karnes as written to the tune of [link] :

“This is new 2-10-2— so much power for YOU!”

I might have made the graphic design a bit cluttered by the time I was done with this, but oh well.



The tidal wave of credits goes as follows:

Lyrics © :iconsteamby51:
Song inspiration © pigwiththefaceofaboy
Tetris © Nintendo
Heavy © Valve
Russian fonts stolen and edited from some fonts website
And I think I might have done something, too.

(And I apply for weirdest TF2 poster ever award.)

Ten drive wheels wasn't that uncommon.  Europe especially was very fond of ten-coupled engines. =)

how come locomotives that have buffers have knuckle couplers on them o.o

I believe that some countries started out with buffer-and-chain systems in their early days and converted to knuckle coupler systems later on.  However, there was likely a "transition period" while the entire fleet of rolling stock was slowly converted over to the new couplers.  During that period, engines equipped with knuckle couplers would still need "redundant" buffers if they were to couple to cars that still used the older buffer-and-chain system (knuckle couplers themselves can couple to a chain coupling rather easily as long as the knuckles are slotted).

Note that while some Russian engines can be seen with buffers and automatic couplers, upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia… , other engines of the same class seem to have had the buffers removed and patched over, train-photos.com.s3.amazonaws.… , presumably once the transition period was completed and the buffers were truly unneeded.

Hope this helps. =)

The heavy is given a locomotive. 
*Reaches for Johnson bar, pulls Johnson bar off
DAHH!
*Puts it back on using super-glue
Very good! Very, very GOOD!
*Grabs throttle to pull it out of the shed, Johnson bar is facing the wrong way
OH NOOO LITTLE CART IS MOVING WRONG VEY!
*Breaks back of shed and ends up in a ditch
RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!
*Picks up engine by smokebox door and flings it into the Medic's 0-6-0 shunter

I wonder what the Heavy would have thought of the AA20 4-14-4...

"It costs 400,000 dollars to run this train for 12 seconds" wouldn't be that far off the mark though.

It's really just a generic Russian steamer with a hodge-podge of influences (like the rather early pilot design) but the FD Class is indeed pretty close to what I was going for. ^^

The Tetris part is probably the most tenuous connection, but the whole poster was inspired by a friend's re-written lyrics to this song: [link]
