As many know, MTH announced a run of RK Scale USRA 0-6-0 switchers a few weeks ago. We would like to gauge interest in a Sidetrack Hobbies exclusive in the East Broad Top livery w/ the slope-back tender. While a narrow gauge railroad, the EBT did have standard gauge switchers like the 0-6-0 at their Mt. Union, PA yard to conduct 3-rail switching/transfer operations with the PRR. In fact, we would be trying to model the #3 locomotive specifically, currently being stored in Mt. Union. Photo in link below, courtesy of the EBT Foundation and Friends of the EBT.
As we do with all of our Sidetrack Hobbies exclusive runs, we will try to keep to the original prototype as much as MTH's manufacturing allows. Like our other runs, we will also be customizing the sound features specifically for the EBT.
In order to proceed with this project, we need to identify production quantities.
Please reply or contact the store if interested as soon as possible.
