Re: MTH ES44AC vs Lionel ES44AC

Boilermaker1 ·
I'll guess 2 possibilities. First... that its RR specific nomenclature, the same way UP calls them C45ACCTE. Whats the roadname? You may want to google it, and the specific road number and see if you can find a good photo online (railpictures.net, etc....) Second... It was my understanding that the MTH model is of an early version of the evolution series (to date, I think there are 4 iterations), and it would make sense that GE called it an ES4400CW at first, as follows the GE naming...

Re: MTH ES44AC vs Lionel ES44AC

Rich Montague ·
I generally agree with the post above. It's even possible both are correct for the same roadname because individual railroads sometimes change their own nomenclature over time. The MTH version of this model in BNSF is stenciled "AC4400CW' and that's correct because that's what BNSF designated them when first delivered (even though to GE that is the designation of a predecessor model in its catalogue). If I recall correctly, BNSF later changed to GE's nomenclature and called them "ES44ACs."...

MTH SW1500 riding up on Lionel switches

pittsburghrailfan ·
The local club I belong to recently added another extension to its O gauge layout. Because of material constraints, we were forced to use old Lionel tinplate/tubular O-72 switches to create sidings and spurs. When I attempted to run our 30- 2749-1 SW1500 across these switches lined in the straight direction, the locomotive's truck appears to ride up on the frog; it gets stuck about when the front truck crosses the frog. Are there any solutions to this issue? If videos or pictures are needed,...

Engine does not work

lehighline ·
This is an MTH Railking Mohawk, 30-1166-1. I put a BCR in it a while ago. The headlight kept burning out, so I replaced it with an led. Otherwise the engine is stock. I went to run it recently and found out it would not work. It does not add to the remote, and if I take the TIU out of the mix, it won’t run in conventional. I’m using a 3ft section of Gargraves as a test track. I was able to add a “known good” engine to the remote, so I know the test system works. Suggestions please! Chris LVHR

MTH Railking Proto Sound 3 Santa Fe 4-6-0 Drawbar Disconnecting

Ricky S ·
Hello, I have a MTH Railking Proto Sound 3 Santa Fe 4-6-0 steam engine. When I run this engine, sometimes the wireless drawbar connecting the locomotive to the tender disconnects. When it does, the engine jerks, the sounds go out, and lights and smoke go on and off uncontrollably. I turn off the power and re attach it and it is good for another few minutes. Does anyone know if there is a way to make the drawbar connect more stable so it does not disconnect? If not, that's ok. Have a good...

My upgraded Premier PS1 Challenger (Finally).

Winger ·
Attached is a video of my MTH PS1 challenger that I had the software issues with. I removed the seuthe smoke units. Fabricated a 2 to 1 stack adapter for the smoke unit. I used Epoxy putty for the adapter. I modified a Lionel diesel smoke unit (needed something small) with the new lionel wick and increased air intake. Just a couple of laps on the test track. I believe this engine was 1994. The purple box had no numbers on it I assume it was an old MT- number. Enjoy. Mike

A year or so ago I purchased a MTh Jim Adams Aux Water Tender. I didn't realize it only works with proto 3.0 engines and tenders that have an extra cable in the factory tender to plug into the Aux tender. I've looked on MTh in the Manuals I could find and no mention of an extra cable to connect to Aux tender. I primarily checked the Challenger and BigBoy 3.0 engines. Could not find a manual for 3.0 BigBoy. Seems like there should be a list of compatible engines and tenders. Manuals for...

MTH Frisco E-8 disappointing

Received MTH Premier Frisco E-8's. Beautiful models, lots of great detail. The Frisco E units had a very distinctive characteristic--they were named for race horses, with the names in script below the cab window. First, a view of the models: Now a view of the prototype unit I took in May 1967 while a college freshman in Rolla, MO. The paint certainly looks better on the model, but look closely at the name: Notice the name is script, not a type font. I certainly would have expected MTH to do...

Improving traction on grades for selected engines

Saul Klibanow 020117 ·
I have a steep grade that ends in a 72" curve on one section of my layout. Some of my motive power navigates the grade well but two engines stall when pulling any reasonably sized train. The two engines are both MTH premiers and one is a 2-8-2 and the other a 4-6-2. It seems to me that if a little extra weight were added, particularly over the drivers that this might solve it. Has anyone else had this problem and what might be the best way to add weight. Comments and ideas are welcomed. Thanks
