The Minitrix 2-10-0 Decapod

Back in the early 70’s the selection of steam locomotives was somewhat limited. Some may say there aren’t enough now! So the Minitrix 2-10-0 Decapod was a good go to locomotive to add a little variety to your n scale steam roster. Minitrix n scale locomotives were always good solid performers.

As with many model railroad applications, the Minitrix decapod was somewhat of a broad interpretation of the 2-10-0’s you would have seen in the real world. Still they were a welcome addition to n scale. The first U.S. 2-10-0 was built for Lehigh Valley. While different railroads at least had a handful of the decapod, the Pennsylvania Railroad had a total of 598 units! That is whole lot of iron!

The Minitrix 2-10-0 decapod is obviously long out of production but you will still find many nice examples available on ebay. While some buyers are asking north of $100, if you are patient, you can likely buy for half that. If you want to see a little more prototypical info on the 2-10-0, you can actually see a few in person. Currently there are at least 6 on display in the U.S. according to Wikipedia. SteamLocomotives.com is a great source for much more info on these interesting locomotives including links to rosters, images etc. Worth a visit!
