This 36-foot maintenance-of-way recreation car was a wood kit which included window and door castings. The Northeastern trucks and Kadee HO-scale couplers were extra and no decals were included. Al built this kit, and then painted and lettered it for his favorite NKP Road. The instruction sheet included with the kit was for the O-scale kit made by Train-Craft Products, an out-of-business company at the time. The January 1953 Model Railroader issue (pp 7-8) shows these kits.
