The Nevada Central Railroad was a narrow gauge railroad between Battle Mountain and Austin, Nevada. This railroad was built to connect Austin, the center of a rich silver mining area, with the transcontinental rail line. The at least 148 km / 93 mile long route was put into operation in 1880 and was used for passenger as well as freight transport. The Nevada Central was profitable as long as the mines in Austin were working to capacity, but in the mid-Thirties most of them were already closed, so that the route was already abandoned in 1938. Various steam locomotives were used on this line, among others the Mogul such as road number 6 or 2 still in existence on the Grizzly Flats Railroad. Wood firing and the necessary large spark arrestors was typical for the locomotives used there. Typical cars with trucks and a clerestory roof were used. There were various designs such as pure coaches with seating or half baggage cars. Freight cars in use included gondolas and boxcars of wood construction typical at that time.
This is a model of a Mogul type steam locomotive for the Nevada Central Railroad. The paint scheme and lettering are prototypical for Era II. All of the driving wheels are driven by a powerful, ball bearing Bühler motor, and there are traction tires. The locomotive is equipped with an mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound functions. Smoke exhaust synchronized to the wheels and cylinder steam are included. There are many separately applied details. Length over the couplers 67 cm / 26-3/8.

Passenger cars to go with this locomotive are available under item numbers 36830 and 36831, and there is a freight car to go with this locomotive available under item number 48676.
