Description

The railroads of the United States were nationalized as part of the World War I war effort in December 1917 to ensure the most efficient operation. Under the USRA, locomotives were built to one of the twelve standard designs, which included the Light Mikado. In 1919, the Pennsylvania Railroad took an order of 38 USRA light 2-8-2 Mikados, costing $53,619 each. The PRR, for unknown reasons, rejected thirty-three of the order, and the USRA reassigned twenty-three (#4000-#4007 & #4017-#4031) to the St. Louis–San Francisco Railway, which also received ten others from the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad (#4008-#4016 & #4032) making (33) in all. They became the Frisco’s USRA1 Class.

After the Frisco received the Mikados, they modified them with boosters on the trailing trucks and raised cab roofs for more headroom. The engines weighed 290,800 lbs, 221,500 lbs on its 63” drivers with Walschaert valve gear and 
26” x 30” cylinders. Operating at a boiler pressure of 200 psi, it delivered 45,724 lbs tractive effort, plus an addition 12,000 with the booster. The tender weighs 188,300 lbs light and has a 10,000 gallon water and 18 ton coal capacity.

The Frisco began converting to diesel power in the late forties, and the USRA1 class was retired early in 1952. Only (2) of the original (32) USRA1’s were saved from scrapping.

#4003 is on display at the Fort Smith Trolley Museum in Fort Smith, AR.
#4018 is on display at the Sloss Furnaces National Historical Landmark in Birmingham, AL.

Frisco USRA1 Mikado set includes: (2) Engines, (1)Tender and (1) Wooden Caboose
