For the first time in the Paragon2 series, 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.
