    Default SP Mikado #786

    Howdy,
    This is something that may interest steam fans and especially SP steam fans...i don't know if u all know but there has been a SP Mikado running in the hill country of texas (Austin Area). It was an engine that ran on the T&NO Branch that SP operated. 2 yrs ago during routine servicing, they found a crack in the cylinder saddle. My dad and i work on this volunteer r.r. and we both miss the locomotive. My dad is a fireman on the r.r. (while he isn't doing his conductor duties on the BNSF) and i have gotten the chance to fire the loco a couple of times. Right now they run the train w/ a RSD-15 alligator nose (ex santa fe units). One of these units is painted in the old SP "Black Widow" scheme (SP Owned a few alligator nose units.)Anyway i was wondering if ne of these loco's have been done for MSTS?? or if ne1 one could do them as i ain't skilled enough yet. If u would like to help the A&TC (the R.R. that operates these trains)or find out more visit their website http://www.austinsteamtrain.org/

    there is a Southern Heavy Mikado. What is the alligator nose loco you were referring to and do you have a pic?

    not @ the moment. These RSD-15's were common on the ATSF in the 60's and 70s i think. SP had just a limited # of these engines. The Mikado i referred to is in the MK-5 Class that SP had.
