HI Gang :

I wish a Manufacture would produce some of the real life non revenue cars such as the pump car and the vacuum train, hoppers and others in o scale. I have a few from MTH but most of them that thay made were not MTA cars like the crane and tender, box car,tankers and engineering car. Than there is the low v1939 Worlds fair cars that use to be on the 3ave el that i remember riding as a kid in the 60;s in the Bronx from Gunhill RD to 149th st. I lived on 209th st and parkside pl. and had a beautiful view from where I grew up of the irt #2 line at Gunhill RD and the start of the 3 ave El at Gun Hill rd. and the stop closer to my apartment was 210st. so yes i have a lot of memory's. LOL not to sure why I became a BO.

Hi, Bill.

 

I'm with you. I would like an accurate model of one of the TA's locomotives used in MOW service. When MTH released its subway work train, an EMD switcher was used for power....no good.

At least it was offered but you are absolutely right in regards to the engine. As far as the cars unless the demand for them is really high; forget it. not to mention since MTH lost the MTA license definitely forget it. and Lionel is not as detailed with rolling stock.
