The LGB USRA Mikado Steam Locomotive is an essential item for any model railway enthusiast. This LGB accessory would make a great addition to any layout.

Prototype: The 2-8-2 "Mikado" was generally one of the most successful steam locomotives built. The first Mikados were built in 1897 by Baldwin in the USA for the narrow gauge railroads in Japan. In World War I, this wheel arrangement was taken on as a standard by the United States Railroad Administration, and more than 1,000 "Mikes" were built for numerous American railroads and different railroads all over the world. These locomotives were used with great success, mostly in freight service. Many of these locomotives were in service right up to the end of the steam era in the Fifties. A clear sign of a successful design.

Model: This detailed, weatherproof model has an extremely wide array of features. It has a factory-installed MTS decoder for analog and digital. The roof hatches on the cab can be opened. The firebox door can be opened and there is a flickering light from the firebox. The locomotive has a four-position selector switch for the mode of operation. It has an encapsulated gear drive with a powerful motor. The locomotive has an articulated drive system (The locomotive will even run on the sharp radius "R1" for curved track.). Four axles powered, with two traction tyres. The locomotive has twelve electrical pickups. It also has digital, electronic steam locomotive sounds synchronized with the motion of the wheels.

The sounds of a bell, whistle, brakes, air pump, and feed water pump are also present. The locomotive has a built-in volume control. The sound functions can be remote controlled (with the multi-train control system). The locomotive has a voltage limiting system. It also has a built-in smoke generator. The headlights change over automatically with the direction of travel. The locomotive has a general-purpose electrical socket with a safety feature. Five different sets of lettering (in addition to Union Pacific) for different railroads (New York Central, Pennsylvania, Santa Fe, Southern Pacific) are included to have different railroad names.
