MTH Ready to Run 2019

MTH announced March 20 in their O-gauge newsletter today...

 

2019 Ready-to-Run Train Set Catalog To Be Released Online Wednesday, March 20, 2019

March 13, 2019 - M.T.H. Electric Trains will be publishing its 2019 Ready-to-Run Train Set and Accessory catalog to the M.T.H. website beginning at noon on Wednesday, March 20th.

M.T.H. Authorized Retailers will begin receiving their in-store counter copies the week of March 24. M.T.H. O Gauge mailing list subscribers will begin receiving their printed copies when the 2019 Volume 2 catalog is mailed in mid-April, 2019.

 

I don't know about the rest of you all, but the UP 4141 and the baggage car with George HW's coffin inside is calling my name. I already have the RailKing model of the 1943 along with some UP streamlined passenger cars and honestly, when is the next time we are going to see that pair offered (mainly the baggage car with the coffin) again? That's an iconic consist by itself for anyone looking to add a huge piece of recent American history to their roster, collection, and layout. I'm sure the 4141 will be offered here and there in the future, but I doubt anything related to the funeral train other than that will be out for a very long time since funeral train related items have so far only been done once (as far as I know) and/or become very pricey from the start being a niche item or a limited run product. This is so far the most affordable funeral train related item we have seen to date, plus they fit on just about any layout! Not only that, we may not get to see another funeral train again since it has been decades since President Eisenhower's passing, but that is just my take on that end of it.

There is a lot of interesting stuff in there!   Boy, MTH is sure going hog wild on those volt meter cars!   Wish I woulda known there was going to be a Pennsy version before I bought my Pittsburgh power car earlier this year!   I also love the expanded traditional Christmas offerings!  The big diesel & the plug-door boxcar set look great... but may be out of my budget, unfortunately.

Does anyone know if the 40' and 20' foot container sets fit RailKing husky stack cars?

Items 20-95378 and 20-95377.

The website says that they will fit premier flat cars. No mention about RailKing husky stack cars.

Thanks.

With the 20- product code, my guess is that they will not. MTH uses skinnier containers for its Railking cars. 

I'm thinking that MTH was reading my traditional Christmas requests and decided "be careful what you wish for"

However I did notice there were no tinplate sets, not even under the Tinplate Traditions moniker. I wonder if this is a one year transition with the end of LCT or permanent.

Do you know who is taking preorders on the George Bush Engines?

 Thanks,
