Coach Yard has sent the pickup notice for the Early 2-8-8-2 steam engines in HO scale. The prototype was originally designed in 1908 by Baldwin for SP which became the MC-1 class. Difficulties with snowsheds lead to the cab forward design of the MC-2 and later classes. This project includes the MC classes (SP, OR&N, UP), AC-2/3s (SP) and Y-1 (N&W).
