Rivarossi HO Scale – Blue Ridge Class Steam Loco, DCC/Sound, Virginian Railway
Sound is great except for the burps at turnouts and section gaps when it seems to want to start all over again. My other locos do not do this so I do not think it is my track laying. Could be a pick-up problem. If the whistle signals were automatic like with a competitors decoder, it would be nice. The loco does runs very smoothly and is prototypically slow. Pulling power is very good. The box of add-ons are not easy to install for someone of my advanced years, but with effort I managed to install them and they do make the loco look more complete. Could be factory installed as far as I am concerned. I suggest that anyone who purchases one of these locos go to the Loksound web site and download their manual. Very helpful. All in all I’m very satisfied with the loco as it sounds and runs in spite of the few picky things I mentioned.

Lima Locomotive Works built the 2-6-6-6 “Blue Ridge” class locomotive for the Virginian Railway which took delivery between March and June of 1945.
A six-wheeling trailing truck was needed to help support the weight of the firebox also allowing the engine to become the most powerful reaching up to 7,500 horsepower. The major difference between the Allegheny and the Blue Ridge was the larger tender on the Blue Ridge which allowed more coal and water capacity. The Blue Ridge locomotives were retired in 1955 and unfortunately scrapped by 1960.
