Ah the venerable #9.... I love 'em. They are one of the nicest Trolley's in Standard Gauge. Probably one of the closest to the prototype available.
I am partial to the cream and green as well as cream and orange. The Pittsburgh one is nice and kind of unusual. Should appeal to all of those PA nuts that are looking for some traction to run on their layout.
There's nothing here that is terribly offensive (as many standard gauge folks had feared). MTH is giving us the choice of traditional or contemporary. Both are quite nice. These still make quite a racket going around the track but I gotta tell ya, those Pittman motors really make a difference in the performance of the trolley. Yes, I like old motors but this thing really does move around standard gauge track nicely. Dirty or clean, uneven or even with a short or two, this thing still doesn't miss a beat on the floor or a layout. Worth a look.
