I received an email from MTH yesterday announcing a run of their Premier SD35 diesel in four road names. It’s been quite a long time since they last offered these. I’m pretty sure it was way back in the PS-2 days. Click the link below to see the announcement.
I was hoping they would offer the Jersey Central (CNJ) version again, but no such luck. I own two CNJ powered units and one non-powered from the first run…but would love to have the upgraded PS-3 version.
So now I’m hoping that our forum sponsor, Pat from Patrick’s Trains, will offer a custom run as he’s been doing a lot of CNJ items lately with help and encouragement from Walter Matuch.
I would be in for at least two…and definitely three if MTH would produce a 2-rail version. Does anyone know if MTH is even willing to produce 2-rail locomotives any more? I sure love those fixed pilots and full-length handrails!
What do you think guys?
Or maybe you’re already working on this idea. That would be great news for us CNJ fans!
