First used on Japanese railways in the early 1900’s, the Mikado steam locomotive became one of the principal freight locomotives of North America. It has been estimated that the Mikado (meaning “Emperor” in Japanese) represented one out of every five locomotives used in early postwar service. The excellent starting tractive effort of these 2-8-2 steam locomotives made them great fast-speed haulers of heavy freight, securing them a place of importance on American railways. Their handsome, well-balanced design and unique history have intrigued locomotive fans to the present.Equipped with TMCC, RailSounds, and many separately applied metal details, the scale-sized engine is available in four liveries-Western Pacific, Union Pacific, AT&SF, and Milwaukee.
