The 22nd locomotive in my collection of G scale model trains is a brand-new product that I consider myself lucky to have acquired. With the upcoming closure of MTH model trains, this BNSF train is no longer going to be manufactured, and the few that were produced will be collector’s items that will be very rare, indeed.
This model of an EMD SD70ACe locomotive is very detailed and realistic. It features digital sound effects and DCC circuitry… allowing me to control it from my tablet or cell phone and have individual control of this train even when it’s running with many other trains on my layout.
The model number of this MTH product is 70-2136-1
For a short time in the Spring of 2021 you will probably find these in stock at www.trainworld.com but they won’t be available much longer than that as they have been produced in limited quantities and MTH has announced the will be going out of business later this year.
My neighbor, John, helped me set up the layout in my backyard for this video. Thanks, John!
If you watch the first few seconds of the video very closely, you’ll find that I made a stupid mistake! I counted Percy twice. What I was supposed to do was show the two different White Pass diesel locomotives that I have… but I managed to screw that up. Oh well, the count is correct, I just showed Percy twice and didn’t show the second White Pass diesel loco. This is exactly why my family has the expression “Jim, you idiot!” We use it so often, we just shorten it to JYI.
