The kit consists of resin castings, assorted wire, and decals. Couplers and trucks are not included. The model in the main photo was built by Dick (it is missing the stirrup step). American Models sprung Bettendorf trucks, and S-scale Kadee couplers were added to complete the model. In Photo #2 Brian shows the kit still under construction where he replaced the stock roofwalk and brake wheel with an etched-metal one of his own design and making. He also built the roof latch locking system using prototype photos as a go-by. The unpainted model clearly shows the added details.
