ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MTH TO THIS THREAD !!!
What better way than with big gas turbines of the UP? !!!
MTH 20-2124LP UP GAS TURBINE SET-Proto-Sounds with additional MTH 20-3022L UP AUXILIARY TENDER (Below).
MTH 20-2261-1 UP PROPANE TURBINE LOCO-PS2 (Below).
MTH 20-2185-1 UP CAB #75 VERANDA TURBINE-Proto-Sounds (Below).
MTH 20-2214 UP #80 COAL TURBINE-Proto-Sounds (Below).
The MTH Turbines are massive beasts! As you can see above, the coal turbine measures in at a whopping 57"! How's that for some BIG O Scale?
Add to the massive size 4 motors per locomotive and you can move some serious tonnage across a pike. I can't wait to watch these monsters pulling long trains. When I get the layout built, I'll weather the turbines so they look correct. They're a little to shiny and clean for my tastes.
Thank you MTH for bringing us these beasts. The only MTH and non-steam locomotives I own. 2 of 4 are NIB, but all will get TMCC before going on the layout.
I've really enjoyed sharing some of my trains with you all in this thread. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
