The Rutland Railroad-USRA Light Mikados

 

 

When I first started this site/project the purpose was two fold. First it is to collect and disseminate information about USRA Mikado Steam Locomotives in general and specifically the 6 USRA Mikado's owned by the Rutland Railroad. There are no surviving steam engines from the Rutland Railroad (Mikados or otherwise) and information about these engines is getting more and more difficult to pin down as time moves on. So, the second purpose of this site is to assist and document the building of "as accurate as possible" 3d model of one of the Rutland's 6 mikados. Which of 6 will be determined as more specific information about each of the 6 engines in uncovered. For now, the construction of a generic USRA Light Mikado roughly as it was delivered from the builder is underway. (see the 3d model page)

 

Rutland's Mikados

The Rutland Railroad received 6 USRA Light Mikado engines. These were built and delivered by ALCO, Schenectady in August 1918. They were assign class H-6a and given road numbers 32-37 as follows:
