    does anyone know how good the quality of the new mth locomotives is?
    the specs sound good but i've never seen one in person.

    I assume mrspock is asking about HP locos, I haven't heard anything about them, are they out now? As I recall, their first offering was a Pennsy pacific, right?

    I don't think you can judge their upcoming HO stuff by their O stuff.

    MTH Locos

    Their O scale things are good. They produce them in "027", semi-scale, and scale.
    I have had their HO K4, smoker, on order for at least six months, I figure they can drop it in my casket. I would expect it to be an acceptable model.
