MTH S Gauge Catalog Live Early and what do you think?

Roundhouse Bill ·
The Catalog is on the MTH website and you can download it. I thought that it had more than I expected. 3 new diesels but no new roads for the F3. However no steam engines so I won't purchase anything.

Well, I live in the UK and, no we have no secret catalogues of European stuff (sigh). Just the same things being advertised until they sell out, I suppose. Great shame

Definitely the western Maryland VO1000. Maybe the Conrail Express SW. The real one is still running on Delmarva (where I live). The Premier CP Holiday train and the RBM&N 425 interest me.

I would like to replace all the batteries with BCR's and short of looking at each unit, researching each one thru the MTH wed site or opening them up to see what is installed I would like to get an idea how many BCR's I am looking at having to acquire.

2019 MTH Catalog - Any Predictions?

Carl Peduzzi ·
Hey all. Well, according to the MTH newsletter, the new catalog drops online Wednesday, October 17. Regardless of what’s in the catalog, I always get excited for the possibility of new issues or exciting new paint schemes. Does anyone have any predictions?

My thought is what will happen when MTH cycles all their locomotives through the Ps3 electronics? There are no new models and or molds that have been done for the north american market. Any Ps4? would have to be a REAL game changer for me to dump my Ps2/Ps3 collection.

I see a few locomotives I want to buy. NS in blue and cream color is very cool and a real one exists. Also, a cool CSX with Chessie logo catches my eye. I am on a cat theme!

Prrhorseshoecurve - I imagine that, if the O-gauge market is still deemed vibrant enough, there will eventually be new tooling produced for "us". (Same thoughts on Lionel TMCC-to-Legacy.) After all, all this tooling was new once, and more can be as easily (in some cases, more easily) made than those 20-year-old dies and the like. It will take this for me to become once again a "new" buyer, as a pattern of behavior (there can be exceptions). I find PS-1 items - great models - at low prices...

Thank God, the Norfolk Southern has creativity in paint schemes, otherwise all model companies would be in trouble. And this catalog is a little thin for us NYCRR scale fans and there are no new freight car sets in premier either but the Passenger car fan has lots of options(Not in NYCRR). My wallet goes to the Lion for now.

I thought there wasn't much interesting in the catalog until I took a 2nd look and noticed the Bi-Level Amtrak passenger cars. These cars look real similar to the Utah Wasatch Front Runner that we have running out here. Might order a 4 pk. Jim

Not much of anything. I don't do modern stuff and the nostalgia pieces are pretty warmed over at this point. A couple of pieces of rolling stock, maybe.

I thought it was a good catalog overall. Fortunately for me there were no expensive items that I must have, so I finally get a slight break from the top end (which I really needed to let my train budget recover somewhat). There was some rolling stock and a couple of cabooses that I will be getting though and I will be taking a more detailed look at the catalog when I get my print copy.

Ditto. Personally I thought the re-issuing of locomotives because it was PS3 had no value. unless you operated using DCC. I would definitely not trade in a PS2 for a PS3. What is the benefit?

I was disappointed that an ACS-64 was not in this catalog, but honestly that's a good thing. The last couple years I've had no train budget. I had a little extra this year and purchased DCS, a WIU, and a couple of PS3 locomotives. Trying to justify "just one more" would have been difficult. Maybe 2017 vol. 1 or 2.

I went through the Big Two's catalogs twice while at York, and will again. Nothing new or different, much less exciting, in anything I'd write a check for. In HO, if modern diesels are yawners, you can go on the internet and buy steam from the past; in O (3 rail) .....they didn't make it then, either.

Someone at MTH has decided to paint the RailKing Ore Cars in the colors and graphics of all the railroads of the USA. Does anyone need or want Ore Cars in a paint scheme for the Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific? The paint scheme could resemble the one applied to the DWP SD40 diesel locos or the DW&P 50' box cars. Andrew

It looks like a Modern Gondola from Thrall Car, Trinity RailCar, or National Steel Car will have to made very soon in O Scale. The TTX graphics are not a good fit for the old style gondola. Andrew

Went to my L.H.S. today and pick up a hard copy of the Catalog. 2016 Volume 2. Bert was on duty from my old L.H.S. Also met Frank in the HO & N scale department. He had the D T & I 1776, in HO Scale. We also talked about the Durand Michigan, Railroad Days, May 12th - 15th. http://www.durandrailroaddays.com/ Gary

Unfortunatately right now I'm working part-time and am a full-time student. So not alot I can afford. Will probably get the 4 covered gondolas, the NS Boxcar, and the CSX/B&O 185 year anniversary caboose. The engines I really liked are the Greenbriars, and the UP, BNSF, NS, and CSX AC4400's. But they will all have to go to the "hope I can find it later" list for now. Overall for me it was a great catalog. Bill

Max, I would agree. I've pretty much gone to MTH recently for new high-end diesels. My last Lionel Legacy diesels were their ES44's done up in ABS, because I grabbed them "on sale". But I didn't pre-order any of Lionel's SD60E's due to the unnecessarily inflated price tag. Seems the new price for Lionel's Legacy diesels is now $650 MSRP ($550-ish street price). Whereas MTH has held the price on their Premier diesels this year to $500 MSRP, which gets us down to around $435-ish street price...

I have to say that I am disappointed in the price increase for small and mid-size scale steam engines ~ and that they don't have whistle steam effects. I'd really like to get a Premier Camelback - but even with the usual dealer pre-order discount its still coming in over $900.

Paul, good point. I recently wanted one of the little baby 0-4-0 Premier switchers, and it was up around $600-ish out the door. But I recall those little MTH Climax logging locos were also always up there in price too. The only consolation we have is that the similar Lionel offering would likely be $150-$250 more. For some folks, that's a rounding error. But when you're buying several big-ticket items each year, it adds up fast. As I told Andy E. at York, "Keep doing what you do. It's...

The are no modern gondolas being offered yet for North America. If MTH can only make one Modern North American Gondola built between 1975 and 2015, which one should it be? Should it be a 50'-55' gondola or a 65' gondola from Thrall Car or Trinity or Gunderson or some other company? Andrew

Nice to see the UP 'Flag' baggage car back in the catalog. Though I won't be ordering it (have previous MTH version and ordered new Lionel UP), many will want it. Catalog image shows painted door on this version-wonder if the production model will be like the picture or it'll be like the prior model with yellow door? Things work in mysterious ways-for years this car was hard to find.

Pre-ordered the Christmas GE ES44AC Imperial Diesel and caboose. Really sharp color scheme. I have the same engine in the eggnog/green color scheme that matches the Christmas boxcars from the past few years and love it.

The RailKing EMD SD60 Demonstrators are interesting since the SOO LINE did get SD60s. Perhaps sometime I might get one. The Montana Rail Link 2-bay covered hoppers were sold to AEX The Andersons and now a common sight on the CN's GTW line in Michigan, so I will get two of them. Andrew.
