The Mikado-class locomotives were freight-hauling workhorses.  With eight large drivers, they were ideal for pulling long, heavy consists, and occasionally found their way into passenger service as well.

Here are a few photos of a Pennsy class L Mikado that I took at the Railroad Museum of PA.

In June of 2007, MTH brought out a Premier line model of this very locomotive!  As the following photos show, it's an exquisite model!  The first photo shows the locomotive and tender broadside.
