    Can anyone tell me what year(s) Western Pacific used the 2-8-2 Mikado like those produced by Kato in recent years ?.

    Never mind guys. Someone on Trains.com answered my question for me.
    For those of you that might be interested, the first Mikados went into service on the Western Pacific in July 1918. They were built by Alco, and numbered from 301 to 336. #329 was the last of these to be retired in 1953.
