Easy my a....

It's here!


What I'm really going to miss about MTH scale-wheel locomotives is that you can enjoy them on 2-rail and 3-rail layouts. I think I'm going to get hold of a couple of Atlas 2-rail Trainman locomotives and play Dr. Frankenstein. By the way, this locomotive likes Ross #5 turnouts, but HATES #4's.

I hope MTH doesn't mind this.... just a quick video of here first run....

I still need to polish off my hand prints and lift the deck plate up into position before connecting the tender. (both done now)

There's a plastic shipping bar that threw me on how to connect the tender? I finally realized it had to go! Dah....

Now I don't know which I like more? Shiny or dull? The shiny in person, is very impressive.

Maybe 2????

Thanks to Ray's Electric trains for handling the deal for me. Nice Job MTH. I'm going to miss ya!!!!!!!

hold the phone...... more issues. Crap.


This engine draws more than any other MTH engine I've owned with the smoke on and it running. I had to add power drops to fix areas and connected my Z4000 handle to raise the voltage. I need to test more and return with conclusions. I was hitting 4 amps at 18 volts (Lionel PH180s) in poor power areas before.

She sure found any weak areas in my layout wiring and power spread. I only ran 2 laps now but she's smoothed out.

It's around 2.5 to 3 amps at 22 track volts AC in. She's reading 15.8 to 18.x volts at the board now. I thought it might have 2 motors? Nope. Beast.
