June 27, 2017. The CTTA is proud to announce our first locomotive project!

A PGE RS-3 from MTH will be produced in the Railking line. In support of our collection of previous PGE rolling stock, and by popular demand within the CTTA, we’re producing a very limited run of this 1st generation diesel in Pacific Great Eastern livery. This will make it possible for members to compile a complete Pacific Great Eastern freight train. The locomotive will complement the CTTA Club Cars  previously released – tankers, reefers, trailer-on-flatcars, hoppers, crane and caboose.

This very limited production “O” gauge diesel comes in two road numbers (#561 and #565) in 3 rail. PGE RS-3 #561 is an operational locomotive and part of the operating fleet at the West Coast Railway Association Heritage Park, in Squamish, BC, near Vancouver.

The cost is $ 240.00 US plus $ 30.00 US shipping for a total of $ 270.00 US per engine. This works out to about $ 375.00 CDN, depending on the dollar.
Delivery to members was completed in May 2018.

If you wish to order, MTH may produce limited quantities of this uncatalogued locomotive for sale at regular price. Check the MTH Web site here.

About the RS-3 Diesel locomotive

By the time the first RS-3’s rolled off the assembly line in 1950, Alco had refined its road switcher concept to create “a truly universal locomotive which could do anything and go almost anywhere,” in the words of author J.W. Swanson in <i>New Haven Power</i>. In contrast with its predecessor, the 1000 hp RS-1, the 1600 hp RS-3 had all the power of a road diesel of its time and could boil along at up to 80 mph.
For awhile in the early 1950’s, ALCO looked like a true contender in the burgeoning road switcher market. RS-3’s could be found on a majority of class one railroads doing everything from switching and transfer duties to mainline freight and even passenger and commuter service.

Ultimately, however, the RS-3 took a distant second place to Electro-Motive’s GP7 and GP9 in sales volume. Perhaps what doomed Alco was EMD’s already-commanding lead in the road diesel market – in part because EMD’s FT was the only road diesel allowed to be produced during World War II, when diesels began their takeover of American railroads. Other builders were relegated to producing diesel switchers until the conflict ended.

There was also talk that Alcos were less dependable. In hindsight, however, that seems to have been a result of EMD’s sales lead. Perhaps shop crews were simply less familiar with Alco’s model 244 prime mover and how to service it. In fact, roads with primarily Alco fleets, such as the New Haven, found Alco products to be very reliable when maintained properly. With their power and flexibility, RS-3’s proved their worth so successfully that many railroads kept them on active duty after other first-generation diesels had been retired. They survived on class 1 railroads until the Delaware &amp; Hudson retired its last RS-3 in 1986 and remained active in shortline and industrial service for years afterward.

Bring the versatility of this do-anything/go-anywhere engine to your railroad with the RailKing Scale RS-3. Thanks to ProtoSound 3.0, our model features authentic Alco prime mover sounds, pulling power to match its hardy prototype, and a speed range from a slow crawl to full throttle.

Did You Know?

The first RS-3’s were delivered with an air-cooled turbocharger that soon proved troublesome. Most engines were later refitted with a more dependable water-cooled unit. The crosswise exhaust stack on our model indicates it has the later water-cooled version. (A turbocharger is a blower, driven by exhaust gases, that pressurizes air coming into the engine and thereby increases horsepower.)

Standard Gauge Canadian Pacific 4-4-0 steam locomotive

This magnificent Standard Gauge Canadian Pacific 4-4-0 steam locomotive and tender was the final piece and the crowning jewel for the McCoy Trains Standard Gauge set.  Complimenting the collection of previous McCoy Trains rolling stock, this was a very limited run of this classic steam engine wheel configuration. This made it possible for members to compile a complete Standard Gauge freight train. The locomotive will complement the CTTA Club Cars  previously released – tanker, reefer, boxcar, flatcar, log car, hopper and caboose.

This Canadian Pacific Railway steam engine was available in 1985 and 1986, painted in black, maroon and gray. Production totaled sixty-five (65) units. It should be noted that this engine was the first steam engine with a curved cab roof to be manufactured by McCoy. The engine was produced with a single road number.

This Standard Gauge locomotive comes with a matching tender in the black, maroon and gray Canadian pacific colour scheme.

Delivery to members was completed in 1986.

About the McCoy Trains Standard Gauge train set produced for the TTOS Canadian Division

By Mark Horne

In 1979, the Canadian Division of the Toy Train Operating Society became concerned with the lack of Canadian railroad names being manufactured as toy trains in O, S and Standard gauges. The idea of producing a complete Canadian Standard Gauge train was brought forward. In consultation with Bob and Margaret McCoy, the idea of offering one car per year, to be sold on a pre-order basis to all TTOS members was suggested. The concept was quickly adopted and the program was begun.

The train set to be manufactured would be a 6-car consist, comprised of an Esquimalt & Nanaimo boxcar; a White Pass & Yukon Route double-dome tanker; a Quebec, North Shore & Labrador hopper; a British Columbia Railway bulkhead flatcar; a Tamiskaming & Northern Ontario Railway reefer; and a Howe Sound, Pemberton Valley and Northern Railway Co. caboose. Each of these cars on the train have a special identification marking of ‘Canadian Division TTOS’, the year of production, and a red or white maple leaf silkscreened as part of the decoration.

Leading the train would be a Canadian Pacific 4-4-0 steam locomotive, which would be produced after the 6 original cars.

A 7th car was offered as a bonus to those who had bought the train set, a Shawnigan Lake flatcar with a log load. This car a regular McCoy production item, but was included in the offering program due to its BC heritage.

About McCoy Trains

Editors note: used with permission  from Trains and Toy Soldiers

In the world of model trains, there are giants. Lionel and Bachman produce thousands of different models of cars, and often those models are produced in large quantities, thousands of each model. Lionel and Bachman have excellent name recognition and produce excellent products, but they are not for everyone. Some people yearn for something different and distinctive, and for those people we might suggest McCoy Trains.

Like many great ideas and great products, McCoy Manufacturing did not a follow a plan to become one most beloved and collectible model trains ever made in America, but instead responded to customer needs and became what people wanted. The intimate connection between customer and manufacture is one the hallmarks of Mc Coy Trains, and is why they are amongst the most sought after model trains for collectors today.

In the early 20th century, the world was producing wonders at an outstanding rate. In 1908, Ford brought the horse carriage or automobile to the masses with the Model T. In 1908, the Wright brothers became international superstars drawing crowds thousands when they flew in an early Paris airshow. These wonders were also in the home, the widespread introduction of electricity to people’s homes led to the widespread adoption of electric devices in the home. The electric toaster, first available in the late 1900’s, lead the way, but during this period the Lionel standard gauge electric model trains first appeared.

From 1900 to early 1930’s Lionel and others produced standard gauge, also referred to wide gauge trains, for model train lovers at the beginning of the American Century. After the early 1930’s, although Lionel was no longer manufacturing standard gauge equipment, many of collectors of standard gauge loved their trains and had no interest in changing formats. McCoy manufacturing, the maker of McCoy Trains allowed these collectors to keep their trains running by providing replacements parts.

In the middle 1960’s after spending years creating reproductions of pre-war Lionel locomotives and rolling stock, McCoy Manufacturing brought out their own line of Standard gauge model trains. Unlike the giants of model train world, each McCoy train was produced in small batches and had a distinctive flair. In many ways, they were a new evolution in model trains. Whereas, Model Trains had original sought to imitate the full size trains of the modern world, McCoy Trains were individual works of art in themselves and for themselves. Boldly violating convention, McCoy Model Trains were not trying to be more like full sized trains but instead be beautiful and complete in of themselves. Much more models of the concept or ideal of train, then the reality. McCoy model trains were what we thought of when thought about trains, how we thought they should be. Powerful yet graceful, utilitarian yet beautiful, models of a dream of train more than the reality.

Sadly, most sadly, after many years of producing these distinctive and unique pieces of American art, McCoy manufacturing ceased production in 1998. While we still regret many years later, that there will be no more new McCoy trains, we cherish the trains that remain and very proud to bring a few to you to admire and perhaps take home for yourself.

Standard Gauge Howe Sound, Pemberton Valley and Northern Railway Co. caboose

By Mark Horne

The last car of this six car series was the unnumbered Howe Sound, Pemberton Valley and Northern Railway Co. drover caboose, added in 1985.

This car, as with all the cars in the Canadian set, came with a one-page history sheet that gave some background information on the railway it represented.

One hundred ten cabooses were produced, not counting two early variations. When the car was originally manufactured, several paint samples were created. Some drover cabooses were painted bright orange with black roofs because Bob McCoy thought the orange colour would be more popular and go better with the previously issued cars. A couple of others were painted gray with black roofs. Both of these variations are easily identifiable because the elk head inside the railway’s crest was silk-screened backwards on one side, thus producing two different crests. The correct crest shows the elk head facing to the left, towards the words ‘Howe Sound’, which circle the crest.

The gray and black colour scheme was chosen for the drover caboose because it best matched the colours of the Canadian Pacific Railway 4-4-0 steam locomotive that was manufactured to haul this set.

This Standard Gauge caboose was produced with a black roof; white, black and brown lettering; Type O trucks.

The cost was $ 50.00 US plus shipping. Delivery to members was completed in 1985
