Beginning in 1986 and continuing until their eventual demise in 2001, Mantua offered a, typically, one-year-only annual variety of limited edition complete ready-to-run train sets. The train sets, again typically but not always, included a locomotive, cars, track and a power supply. This Mint Condition Factory Sealed MRrHQ Collectible Mantua 91158 Klondike Express 1860s Boxed Freight Train Set, offered for one year only in 1992, is a golden example of this great Mantua tradition. (Originally offered with two bonus cars not included with this set.)
Early era steam locomotives fought the Civil War, conquered the mountains and won the west. They were also aesthetically beautiful rolling works of art and this MRrHQ Collectible HO Scale Mantua 308-25 Rogers B&O 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler "Dixie Bell" Locomotive is certainly no exception.
