The Motive Power International MP36PH is used by a number of cities across the country for commuter service, their often distinctive and colorful paint schemes serving to make these locomotives the “figureheads” for local commuter service.


Even without paint, the body line of the MP36 makes it look streamlined and modern.


The MP36PH has a unique window arrangement which overlaps
the otherwise smooth line of the body with hard angles.

Despite the complicated lightpiping required to illuminate the
bevy of lights and numberboards on the front of the
locomotive, there is still space for see-through cabin
and fully detailed, flush windows.

Since they spend half the time driving backwards, the
Metra MP36PH has more lights mounted on the front
of the locomotive than usual. The front angle also
gives a good look at the unique shape of the
locomotive's windows.

Crisp venting and panel molding can be found all across the
locomotive body.

A straight profile shot highlites how, despite the
combination of complex curves on the roof and straight
lines of the front windows, the locomotive manages to
achieve the silhouette of a consistent arc.

Unlike the front, the rear of the MP36PH is a much more
modest affair with a single headlight and hazard beacon (will
be colored red on the final release).

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
