The body and
underframe are injection molded plastic, with etched brass end
platforms. Intricate and accurate detail is present
throughout. The model rides at the prototypically-correct height
above the rails, on ASF 70-ton Ride Control roller-bearing trucks fitted
with low-profile metal wheelsets, lowered brake gear and ladders, and
Keystone cushioned underframe. Simulated cushioned-underframe
coupler pockets are integrated into the underframe. The model is
equipped with Micro-Trains compatible knuckle couplers, and represents the
prototype in the non-roofwalk configuration.
Operation of this model over curved trackage of less than 10-inch radius is not recommended.
