The Pacific-type locomotive evolved as the need for power and speed increased. First, the four-wheel leading truck delivered stability at the faster speeds. Second, six tall drivers provided pulling power and speed. Last, a two-wheel trailing truck provided support for a larger firebox. The sum of this design was the 4-6-2 USRA Pacific.

The USRA designation for light and heavy locomotives was a function of the track's ability to withstand weight. Excessive axle weight could damage the rails, loosen fastenings, and also cause damage to the locomotive. The USRA deemed a maximum of 54,000 pounds per axle as a light locomotive. The USRA Light Pacific weighed in at 277,000 lbs, with a 73 inch driver diameter and a boiler pressure of 200 lb/in.

BLI's models follow the original designs closely. Railroad specific variations are not modeled on these locomotives. In most instances we offer two locomotive numbers for each railroad, and we are offering a painted model (black) with no lettering.

NOTICE: Due to insufficient boiler diameter in the USRA Heavy and Light Pacifics, these units will not have smoke units.

Some notes about your new model:

Broadway Limited Imports has created a special soundset for your new Christmas-themed USRA Pacific model. By default, the

functions will act differently from a typical Paragon3 steam engine.

F1: Sleigh Bells F15: No function

F2: Santa Claus Christmas Message F16 – F19: Elf Chatter

F4: Plays the song Jingle Bells F20: Elf Workshop Sounds

F7: Plays the song We Wish You A Merry Christmas F21: Lumber Mill Sounds with Christmas theme

F14: No function F23: Reindeer Hooves (when train is moving)

Other Notes:

CV158 controls the volume of both songs. Value range is 0-255.

To hear only the Christmas Sounds: set CVs 137 through 155 to a value of 0 (zero). Then set CV199 to 0.

If you want your train sounds to function like a typical Paragon3 Steam Engine, change the following CV’s.

CV223 = 1 (for normal train bell) CV222 = 5 (for DCMaster Aux Key)

CV224 = 1 (or press F22) (for USRA whistle) CV40 = 21 (F7 becomes inactive)

CV37 = 5 (F4 plays air pump sounds)
