HO (1/87) scale 92' Diesel Railroad Tug

This beautiful kit is based on a 92' 9" Diesel Railroad Tug Boat built around 1953. These tugs were indispensable to the rail-marine industry towing carfloats and station floats out to ships, piers and across the harbors and coastal waterways of the United States. They also transferred loaded carfloats from one side of harbors to the other as an extension of rail lines crossing waterways. The tall wheelhouse allowed the ship captain an unobstructed view above carfloats loaded with boxcars.

Our kit is comprised of highly detailed cast resin structural parts i.e.... one piece cast resin hull, one piece cast resin superstructure, one piece cast resin wheelhouse along with other highly detailed cast resin parts. Unlike some other manufacturer's resin kits, ours require very little cleanup of flash and parting lines. We specialize in resin castings that display crisp, intricate detail with thin cross sections. Pewter detail parts include 20 tire bumpers (now cast resin), mast, bitts, anchor, fire monitor and searchlight along with other pewter detail parts. Laser cut plastic railings and laser cut window glazing, rope, and glass bead running lights are also included. (not pictured)
