The catalog says "decorative brake wheels" (!) Since the original
cars did not have power hand brakes, it seems MTH is going to have
some anachronism issues. There are no visible door locks or
Enterprise mechanisms visible but all 17 photos show only the
right side/A-end of the car. (The Enterprise mechanism was on
one side only.) There are no interior detail photos.

Also of interest is that the high angle photo of one corner of a car shows wire grabs, while the full-model photos show cast-on grabs. One can be charitable and conclude that they still have some decisions to make. I DO like the foobie warning, though.
