Lead UP MT-1 7003 Greyhound 4-8-2 Katsumi Brass HO CP
Union Pacific MT-1 7003 Greyhound 4-8-2 Balboa Katsumi Brass.  Balboa imported this model from Katsumi of  Japan.  The model is custom painted.  The 7000 Class 4-8-2 locomotives were the solution to pull Union Pacific’s increasingly popular passenger trains on mountainous routes like the Wasatch. The railroad put into service 60 Mountain type locomotives between 1922 and 1925. Until the advent of the 800-class 4-8-4 locomotive in the mid-1930s, the Sports Models with their open cabs remained the mainstay of UP passenger service.  Roster Number 7009 was among the First delivery of MT-1 Whyte class Mountains  from Alco Brooks during 1922.  The Union Pacific MT-1 and MT-2 classes employed Young valve gear.  Similar to Walschaerts,  the Young type used the piston rod motion on one side of the locomotive to drive the valve gear on the other side.  The locomotive rested on an octet of 73 inch drivers.  The boilers of the class developed 200 PSI of steam that powered the 29 inch bore by 28 inch stroke cylinders.  The 587,750 engines were able to develop a tractive effort of 54,838 pounds.  These engines served passengers and were eventually replaced by Northerns and diesels over the years.  The model comes with its original box and insert.  Please allow $14.75 for insured domestic shipping and handling. Foreign bidders please email for a shipping quote.
