Steam engines with the 4-8-2 wheel arrangement are usually called "Mountains." But NYC called theirs Mohawks named after the Mohawk River, as they found "Mountain" inappropriate for their flat route. NYC had four different classes of Mohawks named L-1 through L-4. The L-3 and L-4 classes were used both for freight and passenger services. A total of fifty L-4 Mohawks were produced by Lima Locomotive Works in 1943. They had huge tender coal space supported by two 6-wheel trucks. Many L-4 locomotives were equipped with smoke deflectors in their later years. The New York Central became the largest user of this wheel arrangement with 600 locomotives of this type as this type is best suited in many ways for high speed operation on flatland than slow mountain slogging, with its 4-wheel leading trucks for stability at speed. Building the most accurate and best running Mohawk is the goal of this project for our deserving customers.
