Once known as Mike's Train House, MTH is a relative newcomer to the model train industry. It was founded in the 1980’s by Mike Wolf who began his toy train business selling Williams trains and parts by mail order.
In 1987, MTH became a Lionel subcontractor, providing the opportunity for MTH's Lionel reproductions to carry the Lionel name and be retailed by Lionel itself.
As part of the agreement, MTH sold Lionel trains product as part of its mail order business. The partnership ended in 1993, and MTH re-entered the market with an O scale model of the General Electric Dash 8 diesel locomotive.
MTH has also expanded its product line which now includes HO scale, two-rail and three-rail O Gauge, #1 (G) Gauge, Lionel Corporation Tinplate, and most recently S Gauge.
Today, MTH has one of the most extensive product lines of any model train company in the world. Trainz is the #1 source for the model train hobbyist community and carries a wide array of pre-owned models as well as the full line of new MTH products.
