BLI 5955 Heavy Mikado, L&N #1869, Paragon3 Sound/DC/DCC, N


New Page 1
For the
first time in N scale, BLI is bringing out the USRA Light and Heavy 2-8-2
designs, commonly called Heavy Mikados and Light Mikados! There were 233
original USRA Heavy 2-8-2's built plus another 957 copies, covering 23
railroads. It was an extremely successful design. The USRA Heavy Mikados
used pretty much the same running gear as the Light Mik's, but the boilers
were 10 inches larger in diameter and they had larger cylinders as well. Tractive
effort was about 10% higher for the heavy 2-8-2's.

As for the USRA Light Mikados, the USRA built 625 total, with 641 copies
built after the USRA ended control. With copies, over 50 railroads used the
USRA Light 2-8-2's.

BLI's models follow the original designs closely. Railroad specific
variations are not modeled on these locomotives. In most instances we offer
two locomotive numbers for each railroad, and we are offering a painted
model (black) with no lettering.
