Steam Loco Motive

Keep the steam coming and engine running by keeping the firebox loaded. A puzzle level with tricky actions needed in areas of restrictive viewing (see hints). Leisurely play, no true order of actions, built to allow viewing as a kinetic art object.

      A puzzle level with tricky actions needed in areas of restrictive viewing (see hints).
      I tried to retain the overall appearance and add some play

      Leisurely play, no true order of actions. Built to allow viewing as a kinetic art object.

      1. There is one location that is specific for operation.
      1a. It is uniquely highlighted to allow a bit of sight…
      1b. On the right hand side…
      1c. Below the rear most tower…
      1d. A step creates a small square window (side view of step).
      2a. B must stand here to travel between the tank and cab.
      2b. The vertical slider of the tower must be up to reach the block then down to continue.
      3a. The slider to release the front half is just in front of the cow catcher.
      3b. It slides away from the cab until it separates and releases the front.

      Super, super, SUPER!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:I really really, really, REALLY LOVE vintage locomotives!!! Thank you very much for choosing the locomotive as your level idea! I personally thank you very much for this!!;):D:D
      Incredible, amazing, excellent:eek:! I always admire your talent. You always go beyond the limits of mekorama, and you do it superbly!!
      A very nice locomotive. I really like both locomotives: the one that leaves for unknown distances beyond the visibility of mekorama:rolleyes:o_O:rotf::thumbsup:, and the one that stands on the rails! It's very good that you made two cards. I enjoyed both a lot! Thank you. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
      I admire your attention to detail. I love it!! And firewood in the firebox of the locomotive, and a lantern, and pipes, and a cabin with fireman B. You even made a very similar hook to connect additional cars to the locomotive. I really like how the rails converge perfectly at the top and form a perfectly smooth railing from above. I admire all the details and their realism:thumbsup:! Well done!!!
      The gameplay is also interesting. I thought for a long time how fireman B could get out of the firewood compartment into the main driver's cab. I found your cunning passage:sneaky:. I like.
      Thank you!
      This is genius!
      Of course, of course, of course 5!!!;):thumbsup::thumbsup::D

      Thank you @Denis Nazin for your valued comments.
      When I first found Mekorama I was drawn to a description of it as being a “diorama” (small scene model) game with players able to create their own levels. At that same time I discovered the forum with thousands of posted level cards.
      I can only imagine what detailed levels could be created if a game version was released that was double the size (from 16x16 to a 32x32 base).
      Binary memory doubles at each advance (2,4,8,16,32,64,128,254…). However it might become to (time consuming) to keep interest going, especially with new players.
