These early kits were composed of wood turnings for the boiler, and embossed card stock for the cab and tender. The operating model did not come with a motor, but this model is powered by a Pittman motor. The tender trucks are C-D trucks of metal casting with turned steel wheels for electrical pickup. The tender itself is a wood box with an embossed paper wrapper glued around it. More historical info about these models is available in the February 1992 issue of the 3/16 "S"cale Railroading magazine.
