M.T.H. Premier Line Ep-5 Electric locomotives have begun shipping to M.T.H. Authorized Retailers. check out the engine in action by clicking on the video link to the left or the Youtube link below. December 11, 2013 - Spanning a career of over 20 years, EP-5 "Jets" were the prize of the New Haven Railroad. While they always ran in the shadow of the Pennsy's GG-1, EP-5's outperformed their electric counterparts in many ways. With its unparalleled acceleration capabilities, EP-5's were able to keep fast, tight schedules between northeast passenger stops. Their electric systems were much more advanced than those of the GG-1 and ultimately became the standard for electric locomotives in the U.S. Now returning to the M.T.H. Premier line for the first time in ten years, the EP-5 is sure to be a welcome sight on your O gauge layout. Unlike other 3-rail EP-5's, the M.T.H. Premier version features prototypically detailed 6-wheel die-cast trucks. Riding atop the trucks is a metal chassis and an intricately detailed ABS shell. Operating, motorized metal pantographs and other details make this the best O gauge EP-5 ever produced. Inside the engine, you will find two flywheel-equipped motors and the awesome sounds and features of the Proto-Sound 3.0 Digital Sound and Train Control System.
