Inside: May you find beauty and happiness in every moment of your holiday season. Additional Verse: Great Northern Vista The Great Northern Railwayâ€™s â€œMikadoâ€ 2-8-2 #3398 traverses the Northwest through a winter wonderland with the Empire Builder in tow. This locomotive, one of three of its kind built in 1932 for the Great Northern, was not only the fastest and most powerful Mikado-type ever built, but the heaviest on axle of any steam locomotive, aggregating 81,250 pounds per axle. Inaugurated in 1929 and named after railroad tycoon James J. Hill, the Empire Builder train lives on to this day, now operated by Amtrak.
