I’m fairly new (no permanent layout and Christmas layout for 5-7yrs), but wasn’t one of mth’s selling points being cheaper than Lionel? This was part of my formulation when I made my first post.

Yes. But the price difference between Lionel and MTH has nothing to do with Atlas O trains.  With Lionel, you’re paying the higher price for the brand name recognition. MTH came in less expensive to be able to compete. Atlas O product is more detailed and tends to make trains more like the prototypes.

The real value in O gauge was K-Line. It’s a travesty that they couldn’t stay in business.
