About Us


MTH Electric Trains, also known as Mike's Train House, has been a family-owned and operated business since 1980. We are passionate about model railroading, and dedicated to providing high-quality, authentic train sets, parts, and accessories for hobbyists of all levels.

Our Mission at MTH

Our mission is to deliver the very best in model railroading through meticulously detailed trains, innovative technology, and exceptional customer service. We strive to create a community where train enthusiasts can share their passion for the hobby.

The MTH Difference

MTH is known for our:


  • Unwavering commitment to detail:
  • Our trains are crafted with precision to replicate real-life locomotives and rolling stock.
  • Advanced technology:
  • We incorporate features like ProtoSound for realistic sound effects, and DCS Command Control for unmatched train operation.
  • Wide product variety:
  • We offer a vast selection of O, Std. Gauge Tinplate, and G scale trains, as well as parts and accessories to fit any layout.
  • Dedication to our customers:
  • We provide exceptional customer service to ensure you have a positive experience.


    Many of you have been with us since the beginning, and others have joined our journey along the way. We believe that M.T.H. continues to be a leader in this hobby by communicating with you. We're the only model railroad company that publishes a weekly e-newsletter with new product announcements designed to be as inviting, informative, and fun to read as possible. We repeat the information found in our newsletters through our online social media accounts, like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

    Technology, service, and management are other factors that have made us a leader. We have a separate research and development facility in Michigan, with its own dedicated staff. We were the first model railroad company to establish ongoing seminars to train and update technicians at more than 150 M.T.H. Authorized Service Centers.
