MTH Does Leland Detroit!
Well, MTH really does listen to their customers! I have been bugging them for almost 2 years to produce the Monorail and they really did listen. They are producing the Leland Monorail in Proto 2 and traditional versions with a version in traditional red and in the above blue. No other way to put it, I am pretty excited about this. All I can say is Thanks MTH!!!
Getting one of these has been a quest of mine for a little over a decade. Each time I see one, they are ridiculously expensive and sometimes they are not in the kind of shape that I want to run on my layout. Bottom line is that this is one cool accessory. I am not made of cash but at least this will let me have one or two of these without re-mortgaging my house.
By the way, I did take a peak at the new Tinplate Catalog. Pretty nice, there really isn't a whole heck of alot that's new (mostly new colors of existing items) but the product selection is quite good and the catalog looks like a winner.
