MTH GS-4 (Freedom) - Photos:



Today I took delivery of the new MTH American Freedom Train GS-4 and am very pleased.  The color scheme and colors look great and is a very attractive engine. 



Just took delivery of 9 American Freedom passenger cars.  Great looking car for the money and well designed.  Changing lights (if ever necessary) will be much easier compared to the Aristocraft heavyweights.






A few photos after painting the smokebox and fireboxes black.  (Used an airbrush with Testors Floquil 'Engine Black'.  Mixture of 1 part thinner with 3 parts paint.)   Also note that the white paint on the tires and wheels have been removed as well.






Photos of the new side skirt lighting I installed.  Has an on/off switch.   (Click here for ALL photos)
