The first Mikado type locomotives on the ATSF came from the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1902.   The Santa Fe took delivery of 308 2-8-2 Mikados over the next 25 years.  The last group was the 4000 Class built by Baldwin between 1921 and 1926.   The class consists of 101 locomotives.  Our model is a reproduction of the locomotives numbered 4015 - 4100.   All of our models feature a Delta trailing truck, extended cab, Elesco feedwater heater, Walshaert valve gear, and a 15k gallon oil tender,.  We are modeling two primary variations - a standard road service version, and a later switching service version.  The switcher version has switching pilots on the front and rear, and also a large rear headlight mounted on the tender deck.  We have also modeled two main driver variations - spoked and disc versions - which will be installed on the correct road numbers per prototype photographs.  The disc driver was a modern feature added to the locos beginning around 1946.  However, many spoked drivers remained in use until the locomotives were scrapped.
