I was wondering though if anyone had a good photo or drawing of how they did the articulated connections between the engines and boiler chassis/carriage assembly.
The Wikipedia article has a drawing (for a similar locomotive) by Peter Manning showing the pivot points and here it is:

I like the idea of two 2-8-0's as a Garratt :D
