IHC M511 PRR 2-6-0 Mogul Locomotive
The first North American example of this type of locomotive was built for the Louisiana & Nashville Railroad in 1864. At the time it was the largest locomotive built and got its name from the Mohammedan Empire (India). 1866 and later versions of the 2-6-0 Mogul, like this MRCHQ Collectible IHC HO Scale M511 PRR 2-6-0 Mogul, were the first locomotives to use the radially turning two-wheel front bogie truck.
The Mogul was an all purpose locomotive, similar to the smaller 4-4-0 Americans, but with better freight capabilities due to a top speed limited to 50 miles per hour and better pulling power. Wide spaced drivers also made for easier maintenance. More than 11,000 Moguls were built between the 1860s and 1910. Generally used on freight trains, this quiet and smooth running beauty provides perfect pulling power for our unique and spectacular MRCHQ Custom Limited Edition IHC/Roundhouse/AHM 1890s PRR Ore Train
