So after all of these years avoiding O-scale, I will be building my first layout.
It will be a small ceiling layout in my office, I figured I would go with O-scale as my ceiling heights are only 7’ and my large scale trains will not fit.
After talking with my local hobby shop that actually still stocks a bunch of trains (in all scales) he has talked me into going with MTH.
Mainly because the amount of returns and issues he has had lately with Lionel and also because he feels the MTH trains and operating system are just superior. I have dealt with this shop for years and I trust his opinion as I can easily see the back log of locomotives they have on their repair bench.
Not saying that the MTH O-scale will be without issues, just that they have been having much better luck with MTH.
Anyway, here is the link to the app that MTH has, I am sure it is nothing new to the hardcore model train fans but it is new to me as even on my Garden Railway I am a basic Set it And Forget it operator.
Figure this system will enable me to hide the transformer and interface in the closet keeping my office appearance neat and UN-cluttered looking.
Just looking to see if anyone here is using this setup and what they like / don’t like about it.
I will be using MTH Premier series locomotives, will be picking my first one up tomorrow!
Thanks for any help you can give.
