USRA 2-8-2s

Stefan <stefan@...>

As far as i understand it, the WP class MK60 #306-310 were the USRA engines
bought from the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern(#802-806) in 1920. These should be
similar to the Athearn 2-8-2s (r perhaps the Rivs--see below) and may be a
good model with some modifications. These were oil burners. However, at
320000lbs total engine wt. are these Heavy Mikes? What is the division of
heavy vs. light for theseUSRA types?
Best regards
