MTH Trains announces closure
MTH Electric Trains president Mike Wolf has announced his retirement and the closure of his business effective June 1, 2021. MTH Electric Trains was founded in 1980. It has become one of the world's largest model train manufacturers.
MTH has released more different models than any train manufacturer. They began manufacturing three rail O gauge trains, but moved into the HO, S and G gauge.
The last two MTH catalogs will feature the last products produced by MTH Trains. The items featured in these catalogs will be available beginning in the summer of 2020 through April 2021 and will carry a one year warranty supported by the MTH authorized service centre network and the MTH Service Department. Upon the closing of the business in May 2021, their service centre network will provide warranty coverage through April 2022.
Wolf is considering various options and buyers, including the creation of a new company organized and owned by members of the current staff.
