Specific Item Information: Resin – Metal – Wood Our “N” Scale Derrick Barge is a common design that follows many prototype barges – once a common sight along the waterfront. These barges/lighters were used for loading and construction work. Many were used for marine construction work such as dock building; vessel loading, salvage and moving large rock for break walls and riprap. Our barge uses a timber stiff leg type derrick, only modified to fit a barge hull. Sometimes called a “Spud Barge” because of the two stabilizing “Spuds” used to hold the barge in position while working. A two-drum winch that gets its power from the steam boiler located in the deckhouse operates the derrick. The spuds are raised and lowered by single drum winches, one for each spud. Many work barges had four spuds. Metal and resin castings designed specifically for this kit. Actual Size: Measures: 5-¾” long, 2-1/8” wide.

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.
