OS 4-8-8-4 BIG BOY locomotive

by Tris4200

HELLO EVERYONE
I have just started on modeling a recreation of my favorite locomotive in the world ALC 4000 class 4-8-8-4 Big Boy. I was able to get the source files of thing 259005 the big boy by Makerbot. I am scaling it down and modifying it to integrate an electric drive-train. The modeler hired by Makerbot also recently released the tender car for the big boy here. I also plan to include that as part of the whole project as the housing for the control electronics and battery compartment. I have a few questions that I'm trying to answer for myself that some of you may be able to help with. Sense the front have of the engine drive-train pivots, this portion of the system must run on its own motor. What drive-train should I go with for transmitting the motor power to all four sets of driving wheels. More questions to follow as I make progress
