E2 Tank Engine

This is my rendition of The London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway E2 Class Tank Switcher Locomotive. Fun Fact: The E2 Class was the basis for the character Thomas the Tank Engine in both the railway book series and the later television series. To start, move the trim to the mid-forward position (this offsets the wheels from one another to allow for forward and reverse control), then feather the VTOL slider until the starboard (right) side wheels are in the downward most position (this offsets the pistons to align with the wheels), then activate group one and you are ready to go. Use yaw as steering left and right, VTOL slider is the throttle, and Trim mid-forward is forward and Trim mid-reverse is reverse.
