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.
