M.T.H. HO sets are fully compatible with all other brands of HO trains and can serve as the foundation of an HO empire. With an M.T.H. set, you'll experience more fun because it features the sights and sounds that make real trains dramatic and exciting - features that you can control from the handheld Remote Digital Commander as you walk around your layout:
Many toy trains have two speeds: fast and faster. M.T.H. sets equipped with Proto-Sound sound and control systems allow our engines to throttle down to a s-l-o-w crawl, highball down the main line, or maintain any speed in-between. The Proto-Speed Control built into Proto-Sound locomotives acts like the cruise control on a car, keeping your train moving at the speed you select, regardless of hills and curves.
Vivid Engine Sounds
Proto-Sound features crystal clear digital sounds: the wail of a diesel horn; the bell alerting passengers to your arrival or departure; diesel roar, and crew conversations.
Freight engines include Freight Yard Proto-Effects, a symphony of freight terminal sounds.
M.T.H. Ready-to-Run HO train sets include track, power supply, remote* or controller.
