Product Overview

This scale-sized model represents the first all-new American Flyer steam locomotive in four decades. Introduced by the United States Railroad Administration in 1918, the USRA Light Mikado proved to be their most popular design, running on railroads throughout the country. The American Flyer USRA Light Mikado represents the latest level of detailing and features found in some of the best Lionel O gauge steamers. Equipped with the TrainMaster Command Control system, the new S gauge locomotive will still run using only a conventional transformer with most of the features, including many RailSounds effects, enabled.  Add a TMCC Command Base and a CAB-1 Remote Controller to unlock all of the features and sound effects available. A simple one-wire hook up to most AC transformers will have you on your way to true walk-around, remote control railroading. A matching caboose is also available separately.
