This is going to be a great thread, Marty Fitzhenry was a great ambassador of our hobby and really helped explain the Lionel Control Systems and MTH Control System. I am honored that I knew him via this great Forum. He is missed.
As of now, I only have the MTH Port Authority of Pittsburgh PCC car.
Sometime next week I should be receiving an MTH Premier PRR Brunswick Green 5 stripe GG1. I'll post when it arrives.
Mark, Great picture and neat Trolly. I look forward to seeing your new GG1 and congratulations. I have other electrics just need to take pictures. I like the new Bi-polars. Scale Rail, you layout is awesome. Great picture. Please post more. Happy Railroading

I didn't know Marty, personally, but had the pleasure of his feedback on some of my posts.
My layout will never be nearly as nice as Marty's, and I currently don't have plans for catenary. But I do have a few MTH electrics that I may run once in a while.
I also have a couple of Williams conventional scale GG1s I run at National Capital Trackers shows. These rather poor pictures are from the Kids Fairfax show back in 2017.
Good afternoon all:
I know I am long due for some updates, as a decent amount of work has been accomplished in the last year. For now, the best I can offer is images. Rest in peace, Marty. It was good to have known you.
Well the Yard box cab, old 520, is putting those old Harrimans left on the depot tracks from the Savannah RR club steam fan trip back out to pasture. Need room for those commuter trains on their way in this Monday morning.
I didn't know Marty, but from all the tributes from the rest of you fellows, I am sorry that I did not. My condolences to his family and it certainly seems OGR Forum has lost a good friend.
DAVE NYC HUDSON PRRK4, thanks for posting those beautiful pictures of your S2 Electric Locomotive, looking great. I’ve been looking for this thread for a couple of days. Here’s to our friend Marty, who is now gathered with his family in Heaven. Happy Railroading
No problem Larry, I just wish I had gotten a chance to know Marty. I had seen him at York and began following him on the forum. Alas, I missed out.
Thank you NYC DAVE, you are right, I talked with Marty over the phone, and saw him at York and actually said hi to him, he said hi, and that I loved his layout on the OGR Videos. A quick hi and thank you and by. His influence in our Hobby will linger for many years, like many others that have past on before him. This thread is really a wonderful tribute to him. I’m glad to participate. JOE KRASKO, thanks for posting those nice electrics, unique. DOHERTYNJ, Nice New Jersey Transit Diesel electrics, nice layout, put some pictures of your layout on the forum. TRUMPTRAIN, I like your Electrics, neat engines, super layout. Everyone have a great rest of the week.
Magnificent collection, Krieglok
Thanks Paul. I have a few more but no pics yet!
My GG1 is on track to arrive tomorrow. I'll post photographs.
