This model has a laser cut plywood body with an interior. The plywood construction is durable and will not change with the weather. All grab iron locations are burned into the car body. The side windows in the car body operate and the doors are separate so they can be glued in the open position. The model includes an etched brass underframe, railing components, and ladders. Decals for the BR&P as well as B&O are included with the kit. The brake details are not included and are sold as a separate detail kit for either a “K” type brake system or an “AB” type brake system. Trucks and couplers are not included with the kit.
This car is a model of the B&O I-10 class cars. These cars were built for the Buffalo Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad. When the B&O took over the BR&P the cars roamed the B&O system.
