The 2012 release of the K-27 2-8-2 Mikado includes four new configurations and liveries that evoke different eras of the 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.
Due to the limited nature of this release, all units are offered only as sound-equipped models.
