Description

Invented in 1891, and running regularly through 1941, Heisler locomotives made a significant impact upon the U.S. logging industry. Although it was considered the fastest of the geared steam locomotives, the notoriety of the Heisler came from its pulling capabilities. The high tractive effort was perfectly suited for moving long, heavy strings of loaded log cars both on flat ground and uphill. On the two-truck model, the cylinders were centrally located under the drive shaft. These locomotives were set apart from the rest by the cylinders being slanted inwards at a 45 degree angle. The center shaft only drove one axle per truck as the wheels in each truck were connected with a side rod. This model is painted and lettered to replicate locomotives used by Comox Logging. Located just east of Vancouver Island, the coastal town of Comox Valley was the home of Comox Logging, which at the height of the company’s success was the largest privately owned railway in Canada.

Features include:

  • DCC-equipped, with 8 pin Loksound decoder

  • 5-pole motor

  • Knuckle couplers

  • Illuminated headlamp
