This model has wheels profiled to operate on Code 55 and larger rail and curves of 9.75″ radius or larger are recommended. The USRA 2-8-2 Heavy Mikado comes in multiple roadnumbers for each railroad when appropriate. The USRA 2-8-2 Heavy Mikado is one of several Broadway Limited N Scale Paragon3 locomotives.
