I'm always adding to the roster.Here are two MTH items that I scored the past couple of weeks. The US Army troop train w/PRR G5 and the NYC J1e Hudson with Scullin disc drivers and pedestal tender.

Ricky, that is a great score. I particularly like the troop train.

Mark, your J is tough. I actually was never a huge fan of the N&W J, until I saw the MTH Imperial version. That made me a fan of them. I still keep holding off, but I really want an Imperial J Class.

David, Keith,
Thank you!
I have liked the J since I first saw it at the museum in Roanoke in the late '80s.

It is my first PS3. I had some issues with it, and even sent it back to MTH under warranty, but they couldn't reproduce it. Some folks here may recall my lengthy topic on OGRF. Gunrunnerjohn is one. As it turned out, the PS3 didn't like me powering the Fixed Input with a Z500 brick. My PS2 had no trouble. I bought an old ZW, and it all works fine now. And yes, I have TVS diodes and breakers on the ZW. :)

Thanks,I had been looking for the MTH US Army troop train for years and they never seemed to come up for sale. Scotty Griggs (Trainz)put this one up for auction and I was the high (only) bidder! I also have been looking for the MTH 5344 J!e with the Scullins and the PT tender. It's a tough one to fine too. I've only see one other come up for sale/auction the past several years. This one makes twelve NYC scale Hudson's on my roster. I'm always looking for scale steam that I don't already have. :)

I won this MTH PS2 20-80004B Milwaukee Road GP-7 Diesel Locomotive over the weekend in a Trainz auction. The listing said used but when I put it on the track it had less than 5 minutes of run time and less than .7 miles. Must have just been from testing it at the factory. I got a great price for it I think. Of course it needed a new battery and a lube job but it's really nice for my first non steam engine. Plus I was born in Milwaukee so that made it even better :)

Not that its a loco or rolling stock, but this White Box model of a '63 Maserati Quattroporte will go on the layout when I set it up for the '60s. In 1963 the Quattroporte (four-door) was just slightly larger than a Ford Falcon of that era, very luxuriously fitted out, and the fastest production sedan in the world in 1963, with a top speed of 145 mph. I was never that big a fan of Maserati, but I thought they got it right with this one.
It is a very good model. White Box models seem to vary a lot if detail and quality and this is the best I have seen.

The interior is very detailed and well done.

This just arrived today around 1330 and was two-railed by 1400. I saw one on a friend's layout and wanted one. This one appeared on ebay. Apparently it is not popular as I got on the third listing. The first was at $40.00 with no sale, re-listed at $38.00 with no sale (I was going to bid but forgot the ending time and missed it), re-listed again at 35.00 and I remembered this time. :D

I got the photos to work John. Thanks!

This MTH Premier PS1 F3 set just arrived yesterday. It looks like new, has very little wear. Now I just have to get it out of Reset mode. I got it for a great price because the seller told me it was on the shelf for years and was stuck in Reset.

First step is to replace the battery. That may do the trick. If not, drop me a line, you can ship me the boards and I can do a reset on them with my reset kit. Worst case is you need a top board, still fairly cheap.

Just to confirm, it starts up and gives you the two dings, and then won't do anything, is that the situation?
