New Steam Engine now available!
The earliest versions of the 2-6-0 Mogul steam locomotives
were built in 1863 by the Rogers Locomotive Works in Paterson,
NJ. The design was an improvement on the then standard 4-4-0
wheel arrangement. In theory, the 2-6-0s extra set of driving
wheels offered a 50% increase in tractive effort over the
older design. It is estimated that well over 11,000 Mogul-type
locos were built for the next 50-plus years. Like the 4-4-0
American-type locomotive that it was designed to replace,
the 2-6-0 was a general-purpose steam locomotive that was
found in both freight and passenger service.
Atlas N scale versions features colorful 1880's era paint
schemes, a smooth-running motor, an operating headlight
and separately-applied bell and handrails. With vibrant
color combinations, these nice looking locomotives will
be a steam sensation! This loco will be factory equipped
with Rapido style couplers only.
