Micro Trains MTL Z Scale GP35 Locomotives

Some time ago, Micro Trains or MTL produced a nice line of GP35 locomotives in z scale that featured many different road names.  While they haven’t made these reliable little GP’s for a while, you can still find them readily available used.  They are a fairly stable little locomotive so if you can find one that runs both directions, you should be in good shape.  At this point Micro Trains (MTL) is the only ones that produced a GP35 in z scale.  The GP35 was a very common locomotive for short line and regional railroads but even larger railroads like BNSF had them.  A total of 1,335 were built during 1962 and 1967.   You can see a nice breakdown of prototype GP35 locomotives produced at Wikipedia.

Micro Trains offered the z scale GP35 locomotive in a variety of road names including Union Pacific, CSX,  CP Rail, BNSF, PRR, Conrail and more.  They were equipped with the MTL magnetic couplers which mate with couplers from AZL, Intermountain, Full Throttle and others.  The z scale GP35 was offer as set as well.  You can still find them from time to time in the Micro Trains Table Top Train Sets with a selection of cars and track.

As interest in z scale trains continues to grow, hopefully we will see more of these popular locomotives come back on the market.  All though  more and more z scale locomotives are being produced, many modern selections.  However, we are starting to see a little more return to earlier prototypes with even talk of more brass steam locomotives coming down the line in z scale.  You can check out some of the current used MTL GP35 locomotives currently available one ebay.
