This 50-foot car came as an injection-molded plastic kit that was already painted and decorated. The trucks were assembled, and the brake beams needed to be snapped into place. Ed cut and filed the sill tabs out to make a different looking car. He also replaced the plastic wheels with S-Helper Service metal ones, and installed Kadee #802 couplers. Available in two road numbers.
