HOn3 K-27 Mikado

2-8-2 'Mudhen'

K-27 2012 Release!

We are pleased to offer a limited run 2012 Release of the K-27 2-8-2 Mikado! We are happy to offer four new configurations and liveries that evoke different eras of the K-27 Mudhen.  Along with these new versions comes the second release of one of the most unique Mudhens to ply the 3-foot rails; the Rio Grande Southern No. 455 adorned with the “post-wreck” cab, snowplow, and tender as she appeared throughout the late 1940s.  Rounding out this offering is the ever-popular No. 453 in the switcher configuration, complete with its one-of-a-kind doghouse mounted on the tender. This is also the first time that all versions are offered with a weathered option.

Non-Weathered K-27 locomotives list at $475.00, and Weathered K-27 locomotives list at $530.00. Due to the limited nature of this release, all units are offered only as
sound-equipped models.
