Mark, the USAT ore cars are completely new and 1:29, and not 1:32 as the MDC. I have both and I can tell you the USAT ones are larger, heavier, and have much better trucks, the MDC was famous for cracked sideframes.

In fact, anyone in San Diego that wants some MTH cars cheap, come by. I wanted ore cars, and did not want to pay the LGB prices. Now it turns out, to my dismay, that Santa Fe NEVER had those cute little ore cars. Drat.

Regards, Greg

Hi Gregg, I figure you meant to say MDC ore cars?? If you've got MTH cars for sale let me know and I'll figure a way out (friend in the area) to get them.
