MTH Re-Release of 2-8-0 by SHS

Roundhouse Bill ·
Guys, This was in Doug Peck's Port Lines Hobbies newsletter this morning. Has anyone else heard this? ___________________________________ The NASG booth was next to/behind the MTH "end-cap" booth and I had a pleasant chat with Andy from MTH. Andy was very positive about their S line and had mentioned that the re-release of the 2-8-0 was in progress. No details on timing. I did ask Andy about mechanical and electrical updates (refer to my previous posts on the SHS 2-8-0) and he assured me...

Like the weather, it's been talked about for a while. Given the 4 years it took to release the F3's, I wouldn't hold my breath. I recall hearing the similar things for the F3's. It'll be good when the 2-8-0 finally gets released, but I'd continue breathing for now. If nothing else, I hope MTH uses black paint, not the 75% black SHS used. Rusty

Andy told me the same thing 4 years ago at the Nat'l train show in Cleveland so I wouldn't old my breath. Back then he predicted that it would be out by 2017. It would be nice, but seeing them blow out freight on eBay for $35 shipped doesn't give me a warm fuzzy that their S business is healthy.

If they actually bring them out and have a good road name, I will buy one. But like Rusty, I'm not holding my breath.

If they do bring it out, I hope the details will be less fragile than on the SHS originals. LittleTommy
