Note that Jack tended to "super-detail" his models, so the photo reflects add-ons that the original kit did not provide. The sides and ends are made of cardstock.

Product Type:Metal Kit
Finishunpainted
Prototype Dimensions:50'
These kits consisted of a wooden framework (for the floor, two roof strips, end blocks, and spacer blocks), over which the pre-painted/lettered stamped metal sides, ends, roof, and roof walk were to be applied. Bob got this model second-hand and had to essentially re-create the sides to make them look like the originals as much as possible, because they were in really bad condition. The paint on these models flakes off after a while. He added some Pacific Rail Shops details, Grandt Line AB brake system components, and door hinges.
