This kit is a scale replica of the 1892 St Charles 34’ trussrod wood boxcar that roamed the rails of many a road of the era. Our kit is a precision laser cut wood product with the finest brass castings specific to this car, precision etched brass components, San Juan Model (Grandt Line) details, assorted brass wire, and our own specific lettering decals. Design was done using CAD under the guise and contributions of Art Hundhausen. Thank you Art!
The first thing that will grab your attention on this model is the 100% accurate representation of the patented Wagner door. We opted to recreate this feature with fine cast brass and etched brass components. The wood components have laser markings or holes to assist in the construction process.
The kit has a complete interior and builds just like the prototype. It’s almost a shame to cover the model with a roof!
And yes, the pix show the car lettered CM. The AT&SF kit has the door opening to the right, and comes with a full set of ACCURATE Sante Fe lettering.
