Aster Hobby and Accucraft Trains are proud to officially announce two new gauge one locomotive kits coming out this year.
Coming this August 2018, we will be releasing an improved version of Aster’s USRA Light Mikado 2-8-2. The original Aster Light Mikado was produced in 1999 and was offered in a basic version with available upgrades. See the list of new features below that have been added to this new updated design. Production quantity will be limited to 60 units.
Directly following the Light Mikado, we will introduce the brand new Aster USRA Heavy Mikado 2-8-2, with delivery planned for November 2018. This model will share many of the same improved features as the Light Mikado but with the larger boiler casing, larger smokebox and cab of the Heavy Mikado. Production quantity limited to 160 units.
