UP MK-Spl Mikado
One of the more common designs of 2-8-2 locomotives was the USRA Light Mikado. It was a standardized design that was adapted to various railroads for their needs. The Union Pacific took an order 20 USRA Light Mikados in 1918. They were numbered #2480-#2499, sat on (8) 63″ drivers, ran at 200 psi, produced 54,724 lbs of tractive effort and were classified as “MK-Spl”, Mikado Special . In 1920, the MK-Spl’s were renumbered to #2535-#2554 and used on the Oregon Short Line Railroad, a subsidiary of the Union Pacific.
All but (1) of the original (20) MK-Spl’s were scrapped by the end of the 1950s.
#2537 is on display at Jefferson Park in Walla Walla, WA.
