EMD GP38-2 Diesel Locomotive - Produced from 1972 to 1986, the GP38-2 helped inaugurate Electro-Motive’s "Dash-2" series of locomotives and became one of EMD’s all-time best sellers. With over 2200 engines sold throughout North America, rare was the railroad that did not roster these reliable, second-generation EMD workhorses.  continue reading

EMD SD-9043MAC Diesel Locomotive - In the horsepower race of the 1990s - which turned out to be a passing fad - the Holy Grail became a 6000 hp diesel. But neither EMD nor GE had a prime mover capable of being upgraded to that size. As a stopgap measure, EMD added four cylinders to its proven model 710 engine to create the 5000 hp, 20 cylinder, 80 foot long SD80MAC in 1995.

2-Bay Offset Hopper - MTH Premier O Scale freight cars are the perfect complement to any manufacturer’s scale proportioned O Gauge locomotives. Whether you prefer to purchase cars separately or assemble a unit train, MTH Premier Rolling Stock has the cars for you in a variety of car types and paint schemes.           continue reading

55' All-Door Box Car - From the dawn of railroading, the boxcar was the vehicle of choice for transporting solid goods that needed protection from the elements. And one of the biggest bottlenecks in shipping was getting the cargo in and out of a boxcar’s doors.   
       continue reading
Center Beam Flat Car - Virtually every sturdy car is offered in two car numbers which makes it even easier than ever to combine them into a multi-car consist. Many of MTH’s Premier Rolling Stock offerings can also operate on the tightest O Gauge curves giving them even more added versatility to your layout.

RailKing One Gauge G Scale Dash-8 Diesel Engines Now In-Stock

Check Out The Quick Start Video

January 23, 2019 - In the late 1980s, as General Electric and General Motors’ Electro-Motive Division engaged in heated competition (that continues today) for market share in the high horsepower category, GE announced its Dash 8 line of diesel locomotives.

Although the first demonstrator version had only 3,200 hp, most of the Dash 8s had 4,000 hp when delivered and were therefore designated Dash 8-40. Because GE builds its diesel locomotives in five modules, it was able to customize its Dash 8s for each buyer to an unusual degree.

Some railroads ordered their Dash 8s with conventional cabs, while others opted for the wider North American or comfort cabs, identified by a "W" in the engine name. Some Dash 8s have 4-wheel trucks — denoted with a "B" — while a Dash 8-40C has 6-wheel trucks. This variety meant that these diesels, which were designed for fast freight duty, also found a home in Amtrak passenger service. Despite their many differences, all Dash 8s share microprocessor control. The microprocessor, a small computer, regulates rpm, fuel injection volume, generator excitation, and many other operational features to make the Dash 8s run more efficiently than any diesels before them.
