Help! mth SP 4-8-4 bantam daylight won't run-grandchild's Christmas gift!!

berkman ·
We bought this set nib, never run. Sounds work, but engine won't move at all. Can anyone help us? We bought one just like it that had been used and same problem, sending back, but this one should work as it's never been opened. Using a new battery too, so that's not the problem. Down to the wire now for grandchild.

Hey MTH, how about some of these?

Steven Michael ·
Not sure if they're *identical*, but these Amtrak express boxcars look pretty close to MTH's 50' high cubes. These would be a nice modern accompaniment to the older style express boxcar they produced a few years ago. Weaver made these quite a while ago but they were pretty inaccurate.

My MTH 2-6-6-6 Allegheny is throwing sparks between the draw bar and tender hitch

LUUUUUV Trains ·
I am looking for help on my MTH 2-6-6-6 Allegheny with PS2.  I bought this locomotive used 2 years ago.  It was running great for countless hours and excursions on our family's large layout.  It tends to be the "Star of the show".  But alas, on a recent run it started to slow down and I noticed it throwing sparks at the drawbar and tender connection.  We are running a conventional layout and all of our other locomotives run great.  So I added tape to insulate...

Requesting layout help from the pros...

AbuelO_gauge ·
A request to experienced O gauge modelers and layout aficionados: Grandad here just now getting into O gauge model railroading—out of my own interest and as a way to spend some extra time with various of our grandchildren. A new space has opened up to me in our basement—an irregular space, closed on three sides (one of which “side” is Z-shaped) and on the fourth opens to and faces a “home theatre” area, so while this “side” is not a fixed wall, I have to respect encroachment on that area.

MTH traffic lights questions

rrman ·
Searched the forums but haven't quite found the answers, so posing questions to people who already have set(s) of MTH either single or dual head traffic lights. Can the pole be carefully  re-bent in opposite direction or will tubing break (metal or plastic tubing)?   On my layout one signal would have to end up in middle of a track so head could shine into correct lane. Therefore, my solution would be to make pole bend over other way, but then the lights will be upside down...

Trade for MTH Premier Western Maryland 734

Hello all, I am interested in making a trade for the WM Scenic Railroad 734 that MTH released in 2014. The catalogue number is 22-3562-2.

On the other hand, 839 is...
