Monthly 2018 Vol. 2 Catalog Premier Spotlight

November 20, 2018 - Each month throughout the year, M.T.H. will be spotlighting various items from our 2018 O Gauge Volume 2 catalog.  This month's feature will focus on the Premier O Scale C&O M-1 Steam Turbine Locomotive; General Electric 44 Ton Diesel Switcher; EMD E-8 Diesel Passenger Sets in Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac; Chesapeake & Ohio; New York Central; Burlington; Louisville & Nashville; and Pennsylvania roadnames; and select Premier Freight Cars including the O Scale Coke Hopper; 2-Car Spine Set; and the Standard Tank Car.  Each of these items is currently slated to begin delivering in January 2019.

C&O M-1 Steam Turbine Passenger Set - The Chesapeake and Ohio M-1 was the longest passenger locomotive ever built - and perhaps one of the most ill-conceived. In the waning days of steam power, when it was clear to almost anybody that diesel was the new king, a few railroads and most of the steam locomotive builders resorted to desperate measures to give steam one more chance.  continue reading

44 Ton Diesel Switcher - The 44-tonner was a workaround of the railroad unions negotiated "90,000 Pound Rule" — specifying that any engine with a weight on drivers of 90,000 pounds or more would require a two-man crew.
       continue reading
RF&P E-8 Diesel Passenger Set - In the mid-1930’s, as the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors was trying to interest railroads in diesel passenger power, there was a lot of experimentation in exterior design.           continue reading

C&O E-8 Diesel Passenger Set - Looking at EMD’s worm-like yellow and brown Union Pacific M-10000, its gleaming stainless steel Burlington Zephyr, or the boxy, just-plain-ugly early Santa Fe units, it’s apparent that here was a new function looking for its form.   
       continue reading
New York Central E-8 Diesel Passenger Set - The first generation of road diesels found its form in 1937 when the initial E-units, built for the B&O, inaugurated the classic "covered wagon" cab unit design that would last for two decades on both freight and passenger diesels.

Burlington E-8 Diesel Passenger Set - The earliest E-units were each virtually custom-made, with less than 20 units produced of models EA through E5. The prewar E6 was the first mass-produced passenger diesel and the last to sport the rakish, streamlined EMD nose so characteristic of the 1930s.   
       continue reading
L&N E-8 Diesel Passenger Set - After the war, the new E7 adopted the "bulldog" nose introduced earlier on the FT freight diesel. With the rollout of the E8 in 1949, the E-unit, America’s most popular passenger diesel, reached its final visual form — just in time for the last hurrah of the American passenger train.

Pennsylvania E-8 Diesel Passenger Set - With twin motors to ensure reliability and six-wheel trucks that rode like a Cadillac, the E8 was an engineer’s dream. For hoggers who had not long ago worked in steam locomotives, the clean cab of an E-unit with its lofty, panoramic view of the road ahead was not hard to get used to.   
       continue reading
Coke Hopper Car - Virtually every sturdy car is offered in two car numbers which makes it even easier than ever to combine them into a mult-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.  
       continue reading

2-Car Spine Car Set - 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
Standard Tank Car - Until the 1950s, the typical railroad tank car consisted of a tank strapped to a full underframe, similar to the frames of most other cars, and the maximum capacity was about 12,000 gallons. But in the second half of the century, tank cars underwent a fundamental change as the tank itself took on the dual role of carrying the load and supporting the car.
