    On the way home I pciked up a MTH Pennsylvania Operating Passenger Station Platform. You push a buttom and the passengers board the train. Well in truth they flip up and hide under the roof. :)

    I think I'm starting to like the toys. :)

    My LHS had them on backorder for just about two years and they came in today. I was lucky since he had a few extra. I don't know if I could wait two years for a order to come in.

    Gotta call that one a great catch considering you got it at the right place at the right time. :thumb:

    Those stations are nice, I have had one for about 5 years. If you position it so that a stopped train hides the platform, it works real well. The people are waiting on the platform, the train pulls in, you flip the switch and the train pulls out, the people have boarded the train. Repeat in reverse the next stop.

    BTW, Jim's train shop has them & the similar Pittsburgh Brewing Co. loading platform.

    If you can't find one local give him a call, a nicer individual you will not find.

    Jim is cool I have made a few stops there. However he is a MTH man so I use my LHS for most things. Not too many more people as nice as Jim / Jims Train Shop and Tom from Tire Hill Sporting and Trains.

    I paid $39 for mine and it is 9 3/4 by 3 1/2.

    I want the two extensions for my MTH iron bridge. I had my LHS order them the first part of January. MTH came back and said they would not be out till July. While I probably could of found them at another dealer I just said the heck with them and did with out them.
