Uncataloged RailKing Cancer Awareness Locomotive Set Now Shipping

October 21, 2015 - October is cancer awareness month and at M.T.H. Electric Trains we're releasing a specially decorated, limited production RailKing O Gauge ES44 Diesel and matching Steel Caboose in stunning pink decor.

This unique set includes all the features you expect from an M.T.H. release including Proto-Sound 3.0, operating diesel exhaust smoke, Proto-Couplers, Proto-Speed Control and operating chase lights running along the base of the locomotive's body. The matching caboose includes die-cast metal couplers, lighted interior and a hand painted brakeman figure inside the cupola.

M.T.H. Electric Trains has long supported various charities throughout our 35 year history and from time-to-time we've released limited production runs of special locomotives and rolling stock to raise funds for those organizations. Our 911 locomotive and cars brought much needed assistance to the first responders' families after the tragic loss of life of their loved ones following the terrorist attacks. And, our Hurricane Katrina compilation helped the Red Cross manage the incredible devastation wreaked on the New Orleans area following the storm's landfall.

The RailKing ES44 locomotive is a near-scale model measuring a full 17" in length, yet operates comfortably on O-31 curves. Under the hood is the very same Proto-Sound 3.0 sound and control package found in our more expensive Premier model of this locomotive, with sounds recorded from the actual prototype. Additional Imperial features include operating diesel exhaust smoke, flashing ditch lights and colorful charging lights running the length of the body. Controlled by the Proto-Sound 3.0 microprocessor, the lights automatically reverse direction upon a direction change. Their mesmerizing effect is quite impressive when running in a darkened room and is sure to excite all who see it run.
