Question by Paul C: Model train Question?
I am fairly new at Model Railroading and I was wondering what 2-6-6-2 means when they are referring to a Loco.
Answer by Justin R
In Whyte notation, 2-6-6-2 refers to a railroad steam locomotive that has two leading wheels followed by six coupled driving wheels, a second set of six coupled driving wheels, and two trailing wheels. This type of locomotive was commonly used in North America on logging railways.
