Narrow gauge (36”) locomotive, circa 1879. Built by Baldwin Locomotive Works for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad for use in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, USA. The famous C-16-60 was used in both freight and passenger traffic, and proved so successful that many hundreds were built over the years. They were used, in updated form, well into the 1930's, and several are in use today on tourist railroads.
This historically accurate and highly detailed full scale (1:1) locomotive would be an ideal Key Asset to late 19th Century period or Western themed set design and imaging, and is capable of extreme close-ups and rendering.
The SolidWorks™ CAD model was reverse-engineered from copies of over 80 original builder's line drawings and hundreds of photographs. This CAD model is considered by historians to be the most accurate depiction of this locomotive, and is often cited in references It is representative of my museum quality work in the field of Industrial Archeology (IA).
All moving parts are individually modeled to allow for appropriate animation. The cab interior is fully detailed. The period correct narrow-gauge track section would allow for copying to extend the length.
The rendered images depict a later period correct color scheme in the interim period between highly colorful and drab black; “Basic Black” with red trim. However, I color-mapped the features and appropriate surfaces to allow simplified material and color application to suit your scheme.
The high resolution model contains 3,133,468 polys. All parts and/or surfaces were color mapped within SolidWorks™, and migrated to the .obj format.
The original SolidWorks™ model was saved as a Parasolid, then re-imported into SolidWorks, resulting in a greatly reduced file size. It was converted into the .obj format using SymLab Composer. Preview thumbnails rendered in KeyShot 4 Pro from Luxion.
The .obj is offered for those who prefer to work from this format, but it is likely most will want to use and/or import the SolidWorks model. The .obj and SolidWorks model has been tested in KeyShot, but has not been tested in other apps such as Maya, modo, C4d and the like. Please review your modeling or rendering app to verify that it will import a SolidWorks model.
