HO GS-4 Northern With Smoking Whistle Ships

February 26, 2020 - The M.T.H. GS-4 Northern with our qall-new steaming quillable whistle in HO scale has arrived and is now shipping to M.T.H. Authorized Retailers. One of many features of the onboard Proto-Sound 3.0 Digital Sound and Command Control package, the whistle feature can be triggered using the DCS Digital Command System or any DCC Controller's F7 Function.

The Daylights linked Los Angeles and San Francisco "in a glorious daylight trip, streaking along the Pacific Ocean for more than a hundred breathless miles." Travelers were invited to "Step inside the Daylight and see the beauty and luxury that have already won the West. Notice the wide, soft seats in the coaches. They are cushioned with sponge rubber and turn to face the extraordinarily large windows." Presenting a glorious streak of orange and red from locomotive to observation car, the Daylights were a sharp departure from the SP's normal dark olive passenger cars.

Like all M.T.H. locomotives, our new GS-4 offers HO scale’s finest combination of detail, realism, and performance. Listen to the chuff of the drive wheels and throttle down as low as three scale miles per hour so you can admire the details as the Daylight glides past.
