 Re: Any good options for an NYC Mohawk? - Trains.com Forums
I know most people believe that NYC is one of the most prominent and "overmanufactured" roadnames out there, but there just doesn't seem to ever have been a Mountain class locomotive made for this roadname (except brass).
The NYC moved the bulk of their freight behind either 2-8-2s or 4-8-2s, both of which made up almost half of their overall steam roster in the 1940s and 1950s.
The only problem with using the USRA light Mike to represent all 1300+ of those NYC Mikes is that they only had 135 of them, and only 99 in NYC lettering (the rest went to subsidiary roads).

 History - An Old Spirit Rises From The Ashes
Constructing bridges and skyscrapers was extremely dangerous work and many of the young Mohawks were drawn to it not only for high wages, but also perhaps for an opportunity to prove their courage.
The Mohawks also used 'sign language', signals made with the hands, which was instrumental in allowing them to communicate with each other quickly and clearly, while working on narrow iron beams, hundreds of feet above the earth.
The opening procession was led by the NYC Dept. of Correction Bag Pipe Band, followed by the Pipeline Pipe and Drum Band, Mohawks from the Kahnawake and Akwesasne Reserves, and members of the First Nations from all across North America.
