Yes they do. When I want something that's badged "Lionel" but actually works, I reach for MTH tinplate!Terrific looking tinplate set. MTH really manufactures some great looking tinplate product.
Indeed!Lotta smoke there Beachhead. I'm guessing its an MTH smoke unit.
Thanks, Mike. Yeah, I used regular 1x pine. Rather than route the tops edges, I just knocked them down with a plane and sanded everything. Then a little stain and poly. I faced screwed with brass screws and finish washers. Super simple but not crude and a decent look. Unfortunately, it's about the only thing I like about the layout!Locos are nice. I like the look of your layout. I did the same with the recessed top and finished sides (Danish oil). I hand picked the pieces at Home Depot to get the equivalent of #1 dimensional lumber for the sides.
Tom, I have a GP38-2 in that paint. Is that what you have? If not, I'd like to know the model # so I can look for it. Thanks.Those are great looking locomotives! I like the added details like the lift rings, grab irons and firecracker antenna. Nice acquisition!
I don’t know why MTH didn’t make roof antennas a standard detail on their premier engines. Some had them, some didn’t.
The only MP loco I have is the GP35 in Union Pacific colors with Missouri Pacific lettering...
