A friend of mine and I were walking past a plaza for dinner which we walk past the Chuck E Cheese. We were chatting about a classic game that had a "figure 8" in O gauge track with a locomotive on it. Doing research we found out that it was called the "choo choo game" and found an employee manual which is interesting, it shows the dianostics and where to repair or replace parts. Such parts is the classic 262 crossing gate, the 154 flashers, and the 153 block signal. Further reading shows that it was all MTH products- locomotive, track and accessories. These seemed to be mass produced but with only MTH equipment.
Does anyone know who contracted to build the layout/game. Why would they choose MTH over lionel? Was there a standard loco to go with the game?
Heres the manual:
