MTC G16 Restoration Project

MTC G16 Restoration Project for sale. The A unit has had most body work complete. Steel was replaced, not a bondo job. Two new professionally built saddle tanks. Speedy vacuum pump with new rebuild kit and crank assembly. Two new aluminum air horns. Transmission is completely disassembled and includes new gear set (5 in total), seals, bearings, shims, and new machined shafts (shafts have not been keyed). Four drives are also disassembled and castings sandblasted and painted. Worm drive gears are in excellent condition and include new bearings and seals. Input shafts are new machined but not yet keyed. Dog bone couplings are not included but a drawing can be supplied. There are no drive shafts. Two rebuildable MTC torque converters are included. One professionally rebuilt Wisconsin V4 short block and one running (distributor cap was recently broke off) Wisconsin V4 is included. Two extra complete drive axle assemblies are included (flat top). There are 6 drive axle assemblies in total.

The package also comes with 10 truck frames in various states of disassembly (two are complete and one is broken at the brake shoe hanger). Two MTC G16 passenger coaches. One is in poor state of repair the other fair. All will need to be dipped or sandblasted and painted. Top and bottom beaver tail castings are included.

There are many other parts for this train including a basket of brake cylinders, bearing boxes, brake hangers and shoes, brake linkage, and hand rails. Some new electric switches and bust bars.

Most of the difficult machining is complete. Anyone with an eye for a G16 locomotive will see simple mechanics and "fit and finish" is required to complete the project. This was a fun purchase and project as a single man. I have a family now and other priorities.

Asking $18,500.  Located in Southern Ontario, 45 minutes from Buffalo, New York.  


MTC G-12, 3 cars track trailer

Located in Redding California  12" gauge MTC locomotive and three cars 2 passenger 1 observation , large 80 foot oval track, custom trailer for moving and storage and locomotive dolly. This train was fully restored one year ago and is in pristine condition. The body was sanded all dents and rust removed. This train was custom painted with PDG automotive paint. The detail work on the paint scheme is all hand painted. This is train comes with all original manuals including the motor manual for the Wisconsin engine. The train was last run at Christmas time and was operated for 40 days and nights with no problems. The only problem was to some light wiring that was slightly damaged when loading back on the trailer. This train is loaded and ready to go. This train is as close to new, as you will ever find. No expense was spared with the restoration and the finished product is close to museum quality. My research on the train indicates it was built in 1956.

Asking $38,500
MUST SELL! $25,000 FIRM but will consider trading for 15 or 16" gauge train or combination....

 Miniature Train Company 10" gauge trains cars & track
We have two sets of vintage miniature trains for sale. They were made in the late 1940's. We were told that there were only 36 made. One of the sets has a tag with #36 on it. The G-10 was produced for indoor Department Store use during the holidays and are slightly smaller than the G-12 which was produced for outdoor use. They originally were powered by electric motor and a drive shaft to the rear truck.

The other set (sorry, no photos) has had the drive removed during restoration. All parts except the original electric motor are here. Train wheels from this set were in the process of being replaced during the restoration which was never completed. Cast (but unmachined) wheels for this train are included.
Each set has three cars and one locomotive and will hold 12 small kids plus engineer. Observation Car and Locomotive are 16.5" wide and 8' 5" long. Remaining cars are 6' 6". All of the cars are the 16.5" wide, 17" high. Locomotive cockpit is a bit tight at 14" wide so larger engineers will need to sit above the normal seat location. Both sets have great looking paint and have been stored indoors so there is no rust. One set is $8500. One set is $7500.
Ask about 10" gauge track. There's enough portable track to make one good sized oval with a little bit left over.
