All aboard for Train #26 the 20th Century Limited! Back in December the MTH Premier Dreyfuss Hudsons arrived both individually and in specialty sets. We are excited to say that the rest of the train has finally arrived. All Premier Line streamlined coaches for both the 1938 and 1940 versions of the Century are now in stock.

In 1945 the New York Central was in dire need of more powerful locomotives. Expanding upon their 4-8-2 Mohawks the locomotive designers at ALCO and the Central came up with the 4-8-4 Niagaras. Designated as duel service locomotives the 27 Niagaras output 6000 cylinder horsepower which was more than capable of speeding along fast hot shot freight and passenger trains.

The MTH Premier Line NYC 4-8-4 Niagara Express Reefer Set is now in stock at Stockyard Express. We also have 6-car Pacemaker Freight Service 40′ AAR Boxcar Sets, NYC 40′ Steel Sided Reefers, MDT reefers, and a variety of NYC cabooses all from MTH’s Premier Line of products.

The NYC 4-8-4 Niagara Streamlined Passenger Set is scheduled to arrive in the coming weeks.
