Body Style Information: Originally released in 1998 as a single car DC model with a Rapido coupler, the DCC decoder versions that were released in 2011 are fitted with E-Z-Mate Mark II operating knuckle couplers and are accompanied by a 72 foot heavyweight trailer coach car.

Prototype Information: Commonly called Doodlebugs, self-propelled passenger cars (gas-electrics) with gasoline engines that spun generators, which in turn provided electricity to the traction motors that turned the wheels were popular with American railroads in the early part of the 20th century.

Thrifty to operate on lightly traveled local and regional lines, with their forward baggage sections, Doodlebugs provided economical mail and passenger service.

Although they were more often used singly, Doodlebugs sometimes pulled trailer cars when additional capacity was needed.

Road/Company Information:
Some items are designed to have their owner add whatever company marking they choose, usually in the form of decals or dry-transfers. These items are painted in a generic prototypical fashion but with all company affiliation deliberately left off.
