MTB CSD/CD T478.3/753 Goggles

Brand new TT manufacturer MTB presents Brejlovce (Goggles) locomotives. This is a model of one of the most popular locomotives on Czech rails. This is not a combination of parts from existing manufacturers, but a totally new design from top to bottom (including a motor specifically designed for it). The units pictured here are the first production samples and I am told that there are still a couple of improvements coming.

Features:

Details, paint and appearance are true to the original and are well executed.

Separate details supplied (with spares) , including 2 sets of numbers on etched plate

Close coupled modern Tillig couplers in NEM pocket

Reversing white/red LED lighting

16 pin digital interface

Detailed cab interior

All wheel pick-up and drive

Well weighted cast frame

Will come in analog, digital and digital sound versions

Unfortunately, they did get a little squished in my suitcase which mashed a couple details. Please take that into account when looking at the photos.

Also available in CD version and is set to come out in a number of different paint schemes.

The following pictures are a comparison to the Roco unit. Some of the details have been approached differently by each manufacturer, but both are nice. In my opinion the MTB version is more true to the original appearance.

i.e.:

The mold seams and gaps which are present on the Roco version are not on the MTB

MTB has separately applied grab irons instead of molded on

it would be in everyones interest to keep an eye on this manufacturer.

Have you had a chance to run it yet? Can you give us a comparison to the Roco version?

^^^ It will have to wait. My Roco is digital and the MTB's are not yet equipped. I would rather make a comparison under even conditions. However, the MTB's do run smooth and even.
