Reply to "MTH 3 to 2 Rail Convertible Locos w Proto Sound 3.0"

Bill and anyone else interested, just because a MTH locomotive is not offered in the scale wheels version does not automatically mean it is not 3/2 capable. There are some MTH locomotives that are 3/2 capable but do not come in a scale wheel version with the -2. This means that you don't have to send the locomotive to Baldwin Forge & Machine for conversion. You can convert it yourself by buying the scale wheels from MTH and installing them. Even if you sent it to Joe at Baldwin Forge & Machine he is not going to give you fixed pilots and full length hand rails unless you pay extra. I am not even sure if he does that kind of work. You have to check the description for each MTH locomotive in the catalog to know which locomotives are 3/2 and which aren't.

 

I ordered a GP7 out of the new catalog which was not offered with scale wheels. I plan to install scale wheels and to try to fix the pilot myself. Hopefully it will be a fun project.
