If you’ve been a fan of our traditionally themed Halloween cars over the past 10 years, then this locomotive is the perfect way to build your very own Halloween train. With its spooky sounds and synchronized puffing smoke, this 4-6-2 streamlined Crusader makes a great header to your Halloween car collection — no matter whether you’ve got every car in the series or are just starting out.

The Crusader’s unique colors and streamlined styling will make a welcome addition to any O Gauge fan’s layout or collection. Featuring die-cast metal boiler, tender and chassis construction, the Crusader sports all the standard features O Gaugers have come to expect in a RailKing steam locomotive including metal drive wheels, gears and rods, remotely controlled Proto-Coupler, synchronized puffing ProtoSmoke and a precision flywheel-equipped motor with M.T.H.’s industry-leading speed control. If you’re looking for a locomotive to compliment your holiday décor, and powerful enough to pull all of our traditional Halloween cars, it doesn’t get any better than this. Turn down the lights and run your own Halloween Special!

The Halloween Crusader is available for order now through any M.T.H. Authorized Retailer or directly from the M.T.H. Website.

2018 Freight Car Design Contest Winners Announced

October 10, 2018 - M.T.H. Electric Trains has revealed the winners of the 2018 Freight Car Deco Design Contest featured in the 2018 Volume 2 Catalog.

Last April we invited you to dig into your files, archives or library — or your desk drawer — and send us the prototype paint schemes you’ve always wanted to see on a Premier or RailKing freight car. We received 122 entries, more than for any previous M.T.H. contest. In total, four winners caught our eye as cars we’d definitely like to own.

Look for these cars in upcoming M.T.H. catalogs. And while they didn’t win, a number of other entries may also appear as future RailKing and Premier offerings. Each of our winners will receive $100 in M.T.H. rolling stock of their choice, as well as their winning entry when it is produced. Non-winners will also receive a model of their car if it appears in a catalog within the next three years.
