LGB Mogul

LGB Mogul

The "Lilly Belle" Mogul (from Wikipedia).
The LGB Mogul is one of the most famous American model in garden rails. The Mogul locomotive was an American classic during the late 1800s: it was one of the most common steam locomotive, used for freight and passenger service throughout North America. The term "Mogul" refers to the "2-6-0" wheel configuration of these locos: two small guide wheels followed by six big driving wheels and no trailing wheels. At the begin of 1900s the Mogul were replaced on main services from more powerful and modern locomotives, but still run on short lines for decades. Few units were saved from scrapping and three engine are still in operation condition.

The “real” world of LGB: White Pass & Yucon

White Pass & Yucon Route

White Pass Yukon Railroad
At the origins of his history LGB was closely linked to a basic idea: reproducing models from narrow gauge prototypes, so for many years on LGB catalogs we could see only model of austrian, german and swiss narrow gauge railways. Few of these were (are) really famous (think at swiss RHB or german Hartz) but other not at all. Just look briefly at one of these: the White Pass & Yucon Route.
