There’s no way the Water Level Route would ever roster a locomotive called a “Mountain.” But by any name, the New York Central owned more 4-8-2 locomotives than any other line – and they were built for speed. The first Mohawks came in 1922. Within three years however, a new class emerged to a much more modern design. The L2a class numbered 100 locomotives strong and were most easily identified by their Elesco feedwater heaters in front of the smokebox. These and the earlier Mohawks were limited to 60 mph running on freight service, but subsequent classes would be capable of much higher speeds and often found themselves on priority freight and heavier passenger trains. The L2a is regarded as one of Lionel’s most finely detailed and proportioned models, now with LEGACY and Bluetooth control and Whistle Steam.
