An old YouTube video that I just came across.
Yep, we had a 4 way zoom meeting with him on the GP60.... you can tell a lot about a person in how they respond to ideas, how quickly they can grasp concepts, etc.
The GP60's are on the water, I wonder if I should buy one... I sort of want to find out about the changes to the motor blocks before buying.
Have they settled on a scale for this model, now that it's in production? I'm guessing that it will be 1/29th, there being very few people modelling diesel-era American/Canadian trains in 1/32nd, now that MTH have gone.....
Ahah!!! A case of 'all rumours of my death have been grossly exaggerated' eh? Thank you for that - it IS good news for those of us who model US/Can in 1/32nd scale Gauge 1 rather than Messrs Polk and Ro's 1/29th...nice tough it it, I have to admit, having a little collection of ten of 'em.
Tac: the scale of the model has never deviated from the initial announcement, 1:29, and it's the right choice based on tha market size.
Pradise: unfortunately MTH announced it's closure last year. So, while it is technically open for 15 more days, the 1 gauge 1:32 line has not been bought apparently. I'm surprised you have not heard this. The S scale was sold, and I think the HO scale. I think Mike is keeping a service department open, and some talk of an electronics division, but MTH is not making more trains, it is closing.
