Thanks John. I wouldn’t have believed it, but the black ladders were for real. It kind of reminds me of the old AHM HO boxcars, where the added details were black…lol.

Thanks Pete.

It would be a tempting project. The paint availability issue has be backed up on some work I need to do. I may do a Pacemaker with the black lettering though…

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...

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.

Who makes that set, John? Great looking details. One locomotive I would like to have…

This is an MTH Premier set Tom. I'm also on the hunt for the UP #80 Coal Turbine that MTH made to round out my UP turbine fleet. :)
