How'd you get the C-21 to work right in Open Rails? On my copy the boiler does somersaults as it rolls down the track.

The train reaches Cerro Summit, and after rolling downhill, rolls through Cimarron.


Fleegle411, there is a fix for the C-21 near the bottom of page 3 on the steam & diesel modeling section of the 3d modeling.
