TINPLATE TRADITIONS 2
53 WORDS

  1. Getting a (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) catalog in 2004, the Tinplate Traditions line started to use the round MTH (_ _ _ _) on locomotives and tenders.
  2. Wearing black (10-1215) or (_ _ _ _ _) (10-1214), the (_ _ _ _ _ _) No. (_ _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _) steamer reproduces the special sets (_ _ _ _) made many years prior for the transplanted (_ _ _ _ _ _) company.
  3. The (_ _ _ _ _) Blue Ives No. 3245R, No. 10-1220, joined the black No. 10-1219 and green No. 10-1218 versions along side reproductions of Lionel-Ives (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) freight cars on pages 6 and 7.
  4. Flyer’s (_ _ _ _ _ _) plated No. 4689 with (_ _ _ _ _) trim was called the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) and MTH’s reproduction is no less spectacular than it’s 1920’s ancestor.  The modern era No. 10-1217 carries a “President’s Special” (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) on it’s observation car railing.
  5. Flipping the page revealed an equally amazing and shiny train set: the (_ _ _ _ _ _)-plated Ives (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Special of 1929 with (_ _ _ _ _ _) trim.
  6. And speaking of amazing Ives sets, owners of MTH set No. 10-1125 got their wish when the No. 10-1125a cardstock (_ _ _ _ _ _) Set (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) joined the line in 2004.
  7. The 4-4-4, or 2-B-2 in traction parlance, Ives No. 3242 (_ - _ _ _ _) locomotive came in red (10-1231), dark olive (10-1230) and (_ _ _ _) as set No. 10-1232 lettered for (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) Railway Lines in the script used by the famous department stores.
  8. The No. 408E could be purchased not only in a traditional brown (10-1229) in 2005, but also painted red (10-1227), (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) yellow (10-1225), (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) blue (10-1228) and (_ _ _ _) (10-1226).
  9. Debuting in red and cream (10-1233) and blue and cream (10-1234), the (_ _ _ _ _ _) Detroit (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) System came with a 52 by 118 inch track oval.
  10. With (_ _ _ _) motors inside and two shiny brass (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) on the roof, the powerful No. (_ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _) electric (_ _ _ _ _ _) loco was available in four colors in 2006, unlike it’s predecessor which only came in (_ _ _ _ _ _).
  11. Among the (_ _ _ _ _ - _ _ - _ _ _) starter sets were two real eye catchers for 2006; the Nos. 10-1236 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) System and the 10-1251 (_ _ _ _ _ _) Central No. 384 passenger sets.
  12. And speaking of the C. of N.J., the Blue (_ _ _ _ _) set gained a (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) car that year; the Nos. 10-5157 and 10-5158 (_ _ _ _ _ _) with brass or nickel trim numbered 432 either way.
  13. Now wearing “M. T. H.” on it’s operating (_ _ _ _ _) (_ _ _ _ _ _), the No. 840 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) was offered in two color versions.
  14. Reproduced for the first time, the Nos. 101 and 104 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) with (_ _ _ _ _) debuted in three color schemes.
  15. The No. (_ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _ - _) steamer in Jersey (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) 2-tone blue with a (_ _ _ _ _) stripe joined the black loco with an orange stripe and the un-striped black loco for the 2-4-2’s return in 2007.
  16. American (_ _ _ _ _) called it’s new No. 4696 steamer “a faithful reproduction of the crack B&O locomotive President (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _)”, but collectors nicknamed her “the (_ _ _ _ _)”.  MTH cataloged four versions in 2007, all with the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) numbered 4694 like the 1931 originals.
  17. With the No. 4696 you could recreate the No. 1496 “Grand Canyon” 6 car (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) of 1932 thanks to the newly reproduced 4000 series cars.
  18. We’ll close out our look at Tinplate Traditions 2004-2008 with a peek at three (_ _ _ _) sets; The Nos. 10-1294-1 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) and Ohio R-T-R with a 384 on the point, the 10-1331-1 Dorfan Lines with (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) on the ends of the cars, and the 10-3042-1 Ives No. 1694 Passenger Set of the transitional 1930’s.
