Full Disclosure: The unarguably awesome USRA 2-8-8-2 Locomotive included in this set is simply a N&W Y6b with the cab re-lettered by Rivarossi (for AHM) for the AT&SF sweetly upgraded by MRRHQ. This being said, due to the heavy wartime upturn in traffic, the AT&SF found itself in dire need of more heavy pulling power and DID buy several 2-8-8-2s from the N&W. None, however, were numbered 2197. So, if you're a stickler for absolute historical accuracy so be it. Of course, you may never see this magnificent and beautiful combination of rare, restored and upgraded classics again. A conundrum? Perhaps.
