Kit #8001 is
just one type of New York Central Railroad Covered Barge. It has a captain's
cabin located at the stern of the craft. This cabin was often nothing more than
a small room with a stove, small cupboard, and a piece of furniture that
resembled a bed. There were captains, however, that apparently did have their
families reside on-board as well. Our latest addition to the Rail-Marine Series
features 100% laser-cut materials, uses Tab & Slot and Peel & Stick
technology for ease of assembly, and includes cast resin and white metal detail
parts. As per the prototype, this HO scale barge's water line hull displays both
sheer and camber as well as laser-scribed plywood decking. For those modelers
who wish to decorate their barge as an authentic New York Central harbor craft,
custom NYC decals are also being produced for separate sale direct from the
manufacturer (SEE THE LINK BELOW). The assembled model measures 14" long x 4.25" wide x
MSRP $139.95 NYCSHS Members $111.96 and that is a 20% discount.
