USRA 0-6-0

Administration (USRA). There were 255 locomotives according to the official design which were assigned to 22 different railroads. Plus, many more copies of this design were built as well. They came with a standard tender, but these were changed out according to each road’s needs. Here, you may choose between the standard USRA tender and a slop-back tender. While there are some minimal visual differences between the different roads that operated these locomotives, such as head lights and placement, tenders, cabs, etc. these do exist. This set of instructions is for its appearance with the Chicago Burlington & Quincy. Decal lettering for the New York Central, Baltimore & Ohio, and Grand Trunk is available on request. These may have visual differences from the CB&Q model indicated here.
