ARRIVING FALL 2019. RESERVATIONS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The Pacific-type locomotive evolved as the need for power and speed increased. First, the four-wheel leading truck delivered stability at the faster speeds. Second, six tall drivers provided pulling power and speed. Last, a two-wheel trailing truck provided support for a larger firebox. The sum of this design was the 4-6-2 USRA Pacific.
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.

Thanks for being a Trains in the Valley customer!
My name is Corey and I love trains. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm having fun while doing it! I'm the owner of Trains in the Valley and I take a lot of pride in helping my customers take their model railroad to the next level. My wife and I really enjoy going on railfan adventures. But, when I'm not chasing trains, you will find me composing music and creating original series for Mytron Studios, which is my other creative full-time business.
