Rivarossi R5464 2-Truck Heisler Logging Locomotive

Moving logs was tough work in the mid-19th century and many operators began using railroads to speed up production and delivery. With no need for permanent track, logging lines were built fast and cheap. Uneven roadbed, sharp curves and steep grades proved too much for conventional rod-driven steam locomotives so loggers, engineers and inventors began developing gear-driven locos that could handle both adverse track conditions and heavy loads. The fastest, last and, arguably the best of the three prominent types of the period would soon be known by the name of its inventor - Charles Heisler. Heislers were produced until 1941 in 2 and 3-Truck varients. The shaft driven third truck held an extended water supply. Of the over 600 produced, a remarkable 30 have been preserved.

This incredible HO Scale Rivarossi R5464 Ohio Match 2-Truck Logging Locomotive was made in Italy by Rivarossi and, boy, did they nail it. So to speak. With flawless and reliable mechanical engineering and heavy loads of detail the Rivarossi Heislers are some of the most fascinating and remarkable blue collar locos ever made.
