2-8-2 USRA Light Mikado Steam Engine w/Proto-Sound 3.0 - Union Pacific

Cab No. 2486

For its initial run, we offer the Light Mike in two undecorated versions and decorated and correctly numbered for four railroads, with road-specific details including accurate, legible builders plates; footboard or boiler-tube pilot; smokebox or boiler-top mounted bell; and high-mounted or centered headlight. Each road name is offered in three engine numbers. For the B&O, we offer the first USRA locomotive, No. 4500, and two of the additional 99 Light Mikes the B&O received from the government and rostered as Class Q-3. For the Pennsylvania Railroad, we offer three of the five USRA Mikes the Pennsy kept, painted in near-black PRR Brunswick Green; the other 33 Mikes it received were sent packing in short order and wound up on the Missouri Pacific and the Frisco. Our New York Central models represent three of the 143 USRA-built members of the road's Class H-6. And our Union Pacific engines are replicas of USRA copies ordered by the road in the 1930s. We invite you to check out these extraordinary locomotives at your M.T.H. dealer, or see them perform online at

Did You Know?

William E. Woodard, one of the designers on the USRA Locomotive Committee, went on to inaugurate the "Super Power" concept that guided steam locomotive design from the mid-1920s to the end of the steam era. Super power engines were designed for power at speed, in contrast with the low-speed drag freight service that railroads delivered in the early decades of the twentieth century

Quillable Whistle: Using a DCS handheld controller (see page 16), you can "play" the whistle on any USRA Mikado or NYC Mohawk, in the same manner that an engineer plays the whistle cord on a prototype steam engine. .
