Early MTH/MT model numbers... Parts?
Posted by SJM on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 6:29 PM

Hello, regarding early MTH locomotives with model number "MT" (such as MT-1103), is there any concern that parts are not available for these locomotives if a repair needs to be made?  (Relatively speaking, compared to model numbers that begin with 20 or 30?  Trying to figured out if getting one for a very good price won't be worth it in the long run if no parts/limited parts.  Thanks for any insights.

This is the current website for MTH parts.  I don't know how far back it goes, I haven't gotten into into it in any great depth (haven't needed to) but hopefully you'll find the information you need.

Good luck!

Welcome aboard!

A number of the early MTH locomotives were rolled into the RailKing line.  Try searching the parts database with generic terms like  "hudson", 2-6-0 or Alco and see if a diagram shows up with parts similar to what you're looking for.  MTH used to sell parts catalogs but they stopped updating them years ago when net capabilities got better.
