There is nothing better than to see an articulated loco running.  I have three cab forwards. A Rivorossi, a WSM brass and a BLI with sound.  Needless to say that the BLI is the one that I operate the most.  The sound system is designed where the driver chuffs can get out of sequence with each other as was common on the full size locos. Every one should have one.

I've got an AccuCraft NG/G16 live steam 16mm [1/19th] scale Beyer-Garratt that I lettered up for the Alfred County Railway in Natal, RSA.

Do a search on youtube for tac - Accucraft - Garratt - test -  and you'll see a lot of clips of it tootling around various tracks with fifty or sixty cars in tow...

Even THAT loco gets out of sync, but for real, and sounds great....

Sadly, I don't have either an AC-12 or a Big Boy, but I know a man who does..'  again, youtube - and thurnby - cab-forward - live steam - should get you a few clips...

Best
