The kit was packaged in a 8"x3"x1-1/2" box. The kit consists of two sprues of ten NBW, track spikes for the door's lower guides, a handbrake wheel, and pewter metal K brake, turnbuckles, and queen posts. Also included are brass wire for the truss rods, hand brake shaft, and brake rigging. The body appears to be made out of basswood. The kit does not include trucks or couplers, but does include two screws to attach the trucks to the body. Alex Huff provided the copy of the kit's instruction sheets. He has elected not to build the kit, due to its historic value, but plans to use the instructions to scratchbuild one.
