Specific Item Information: This kit is perfect for any harbour or river scene. With its high pilot house, this tug typifies a railroad tug boat used for moving railroad car flats and barges. The higher pilot house allows the captain to see over a railway car float loaded with box car. With the closing of most car float operations, many of these tugs may now be seen in regular tug boat service. Kit includes etched brass stanchions. Tug measures 6.25" X 1.75".

Road Name History:
Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.
