The prototype for this car was similar to the Pennsylvania Railroad's X29 (and the S Scale America model released in 2013). However, these kits used paper printed sides and roofs, with a printed running board. The two ends were printed in box-car-red and had white lettering. The corrugated doors were printed as well and were part of the side image. There was also an Ajax brake wheel that you could cut out and paste on one of the ends. This is all to be folded and placed upon a wood box they tell you how to make from the sizes of wood they may have supplied in the kit.

These were craftsman kits consisting of a cardboard tube for the tank portion and turned wood ends and domes. A printed paper wrapper was put around this and placed upon a frame you build up from wood sticks. Next, you would paint the car and attach the C-D trucks. This model has been upgraded with Kadee S # 802 couplers.
