USRA 4-6-2 Heavy Pacific
(Sound & DCC)


Canadian National  No. 5298



Heavy!



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.
