Ever since its debut in the Premier Line the GE Evolution Hybrid diesel-electric locomotive has been a popular item. First appearing in the RailKing line up in the 2013 catalog Stockyard Express is happy to report that this version is just as good as popular as the Premier version. So much so that after the initial release MTH had to remake it! MTH later announced an uncataloged caboose to match the engine which is now available.

30-20268-1 GE Evolution Hybrid ES44ACe Imperial Diesel Engine With Proto-Sound 3.0 $349.95

30-77262 GE Evolution Caboose $59.95

Both the engine and caboose are now available to purchase as a set at Stockyard Express for $379.95!

Warehouse Finds! Atlas & K-Line Reefers

Stockyard Express has ventured back into the warehouse and look we found! A collection of brand new woodsided reefer cars by Atlas and K-Line. All of these items were cataloged several years ago and many are no longer available. For those of you new to the hobby K-Line was absorbed by Lionel in 2006.

All of these cars are scale and would look great behind a Nickel Plate Road Berkshire or any steam era locomotive. Each has a unique and colorful paint scheme reflecting the very colorful era when railroads moved everything.

Item number, car name, and number listed with price. Call us during store hours or stop in and see them!

Nickel Plate Road Caboose, RPO, and W&LE Berk

Stockyard Express is excited to remind you of our upcoming Stockyard Exclusive Products made by MTH Electric Trains.

First off we  have two MTH Premier Line NKP Heavyweight RPO cars which would look perfect behind a Berkshire, a silver ALCO PA, a white ALCO PA, or a GP-9.  The Nickel Plate Road never owned a streamlined RPO or baggage car and used the old heavyweights until the discontinuation of passenger service. You have two road numbers to choose from. Regularly these cars would cost $99.95 but we are selling them for $89.95!

The item numbers are:
20-42018 RPO #830
20-42017 RPO #831 (owned by the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society)

Both will be in Pullman Green with gold lettering.

Second we have two Nickel Plate Road N6b cabooses also from the MTH Premier Line. Pictured above is MTH’s previous run on of this particular caboose from a few years ago. Ours will be have the same colors and lettering but with different numbers. One will be #1155 which is now being preserved in nearby Vermilion, Ohio and the other will be #1047 which is in Bellevue. Item numbers and arrival date  are to be announced later but they will each be $64.95.

Nickel Plate Road N6b Caboose #1155 – Vermilion, Ohio

Nickel Plate Road N6b Caboose #1047 – Bellevue, Ohio

Lastly we are in talks with MTH to create a Premier Line Wheeling & Lake Erie K-class Berkshire. We have selected #6413 as it had a MARS light before the merger with the NKP and 13 is our lucky number. If you are at all interested in owning one of these engines please contact us ASAP as we will only do it if we have enough orders and or interest!

We strongly suggest that you pre-order any or all of these products with us without delay! You may do so by calling us during store hours at 440-774-2131, emailing us with your name, phone number, and stating which products you are interested at, or by visiting us in person.

New RK Berks, E8s and Dash-8s Reviewed

Lots of new trains to bring in the new year! We are happy to introduce the latest arrivals from MTH Electric Trains in both the RailKing and Premier Line. Remember to click the images for closer look!

RK 765

30-1629-1 Nickel Plate Road 765

First we shall start off with the fan favorite 2-8-4 Berkshire Nickel Plate Road 765.  A RailKing Imperial model this engine is a great sounding and performing locomotive. Equipped with Proto-Sound 3.0 and featuring sounds that just may have been recorded from the real 765.  The PFA or Passenger/Freight Announcement sequence has the engine pulling the named train the Westerner into famous cities along the Nickel Plate main line such as Erie, Cleveland, and Fort Wayne. Also it has a new chuff sound which is very close to the real 765’s characteristic “shot-gun” exhaust and has the classic Nickel Plate whistle.

PL&E Berk

30-1632-1 P&LE Berkshire Notice the longer wireless drawbar between the engine and tender. A shorter drawbar is included if you wish to change it out for operation on larger curves.

The Pittsburgh & Lake Erie (NYC) Berkshire features all of the same features as the 765 but instead of hauling a passenger train during the PFA it is hauling a freight train. The P&LE A2 Berkshires have a very interesting history as they were the last steam locomotives produced by ALCO for domestic use as only 7 were built and they all had very short careers.  ALCO itself was on the verge of eliminating their steam facilities and they had to contract with the Lima Locomotive Works to build the tenders. They were the NYC’s motive power departments’s last ditch effort to extend the use of the steam locomotive but diesels were already on their victory march. Nevertheless this is a unique and interesting locomotive class. Just imagine how mind boggling it must of been to build something so big and powerful and to see it scrapped a few short years later.

Please note that all of the RailKing Berkshires are equipped with a longer wireless drawbar for O-31 curve operation. The gap between the engine and tender is considerably large. However a shorter drawbar is included with all of the engines if you desire to switch it out for a more realistic looking engine-tender gap and or for operation on larger curves.

Next up we have the Premier EMD E8 diesel locomotives for the New York Central and the Pennsylvania. The E8 was designed to head fast, long distance passenger trains and they were highly successful at doing just that. These two particular iterations of the E8 from MTH are rather unique. Each has the double start up sound to reflect the twin motors to the prototype. Both feature Passenger Station Announcements.

20-20399-1 NYC E8 ABA

20-20399-1 NYC E8 ABA

The New York Central E8 is painted in the experimental “Century Green” paint scheme which was only ever worn by seven NYC E8s. The PFA is passenger and features the named train the Chicagoan. Amazingly one of those seven ended up in preservation and has been restored to the green paint. Read all about it here


The lead Pennsylvania E8 is number 5711 which is owned and operated by the Juniata Terminal Company. The PRR E8 model also features operating ditch lights.

20-20398-1 PRR E8 ABA

20-20398-1 PRR E8 ABA

Last but not least are the Premier Dash-8s for Norfolk Southern, Conrail and CSX. The Dash-8 was the big power of the day in the 1980s and is still a very common sight on the nation’s rails today. In fact NS 8414 has been spotted by Stockyard Express employees. Each model features a great sound set with different sounding horns on each model. The PFA sequence is also very engaging.
