This kit is to build one Wood Ore Car in HOn3. The kit includes a single plastic piece body of the car, (2) Kadee 26" rib backed wheelsets, etched brass brake wheel, brass wire for brake wheel, Rio Grande Models brake beams/brakes and styrene. The kit does NOT include couplers but will accept Kadee 714 or Seargent Couplers (as shown in photo). Each body is cleaned and ready for paint. The body looks just as it does in the finished model picture. The assembled kit exhibits excellent rolling/tracking properties due to precise engineering of the journals and the pointed holes in which the axle points ride.
These ore cars are inspired by wooden ore cars used throughout the United States in the early 1900's. More specifically, the model is inspired by the Iron Mountain coal car which is available from Accucraft in 1:20.3 scale.
