MTH Electric Trains HO and S gauge tooling has been acquired by Scaletrains.com, according to company president Shane Wilson.
“The purchase of MTH’s HO products also allows us to broaden our product line into passenger cars, track, and more. We believe there is an opportunity to grow the S market as well,” he said in January.
The purchase includes steam and diesel locomotives, freight cars, and track in both scales. The HO tooling also includes turbine and electric locomotives, subway sets, passenger cars, and more. Engineering schematics for several all-new HO steam locomotive projects were also part of the deal.
“ScaleTrains.com has a great reputation in the industry and the MTH HO tooling will make a great addition to their already impressive lineup,” said Mike Wolf, President of MTH Electric Trains. “S gauge fans will find the ScaleTrains.com team loaded with talent and model railroading experience.”
Production testing of new products is already happening. Models are expected to be available to the public in 2022.
MTH Electric Trains will fulfill all outstanding customer HO and S Scale preorders. In addition, service and support for products sold by MTH Electric Trains will be serviced by the current MTH Authorized Service Center network. This includes parts sales.
Products manufactured by ScaleTrains.com will be serviced by Product Support in Benton, Tenn.
