Thanks for posting. A couple of good books that tell the Williams and MTH stories are:

The Story of Williams Electric Trains (by John Hubbard) published 1987

A Toy Train Story (The Remarkable History of MTH Electric Trains) published 2000

Yep, Jerry Williams was Mike Wolfs mentor. Mike had the vision and the guts to start a new train company from scratch with Dads financial help.
