KIT CONTENTS: etched brass sheets, brass metal shapes, gun-metal color chain, Tweezer-fold© tread-grip steps, beads, wire, pins & full color instructions.
Unsupervised metalworking is not recommended for children under the age of 14 years.










 Beautifully etched details that make this a working model unlike any others. The foundation posts are solid square brass rod, giving the structure a low center of gravity and plenty of heft. The gates on the chutes will actually rotate to "open" & "closed" position by moving the lever. The chute extensions fold up out of the way when pulled by the realistic looking gun-metal chains. The sheaves use slippery beads as bearings so that the chains never bind up. The steps are by far the most exciting achievement for this design: Each step is easily rotated to a level position by using tweezers and each stairway-set is logically mounted with the assistance of slots, brackets & tabs. A design for successful model railroading!
