Broadway Limited HO #5915 USRA Light Pacific 4-6-2, ACL 1525, Paragon3 Sound/DC/DCC
The USRA designation for light and heavy locomotives was a function of the track's ability to withstand weight. Excessive axle weight could damage the rails, loosen fastenings, and also cause damage to the locomotive. The USRA deemed a maximum of 54,000 pounds per axle as a light locomotive. The USRA Light Pacific weighed in at 277,000 lbs, with a 73 inch driver diameter and a boiler pressure of 200 lb/in.
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.
NOTICE: Due to insufficient boiler diameter in the USRA Heavy and Light Pacifics, these units will not have smoke units.
