HIYA Everyone,

Is Model Traction Supply still making models?
I found one of their differential dump cars in my inventory last night.

A google search showed no such company alive today. Could be another one that's faded into model history.

Junior,

Thanks for that link. I wonder if those are 2008 prices or up to date prices. They haven't updated their site since 2008. I always wonder if a company like that is still in buisness when they haven't updated their site in 4 years.

Bernd

Bernd,
He gives his phone number.....right in NY state.   A simple call will tell if he's still active.

Is Model Traction Supply still making models?

The Model Traction Supply business that made the differential dump car kit is long gone.

The MTS Imports business is a descendent of Model Traction Supply, but doesn't have anything to do with the products from Model Traction Supply.

Anyway, *some* of the parts from Model Traction Supply are available nowadays from KND Enterprises, Inc

The market for H0 scale traction models has changed significantly over the past decade, and the cost of producing new brass models has gone through the roof
