USA Trains - BIG BOY - Possibly 2022.....

Recommended Posts

After enquiring with USA trains about the availability of the 1/29th scale Big Boy, I got a very laconic answer that they may do a re-run in 2022.

 

I would encourage folks who have an interest for this engine, to get in touch with USA Trains and voice their interest. The more queries they get, the most likely they will manufacture it again.

 

Thanks

Yves

Wow that is great news. To paraphrase the late Lewis Polk "Large articulated steam engines will never sell". Odd as USA made 2 production runs of the Big Boy and seems to me the first run was 150 units...that was in a catalog or GR ad they ran. Say at least 100 in 2nd run means at least 200 - 300 of those behemoths out there.

 

MTH has made hundreds of both Big Boys and Challengers.
