Product Type:Kit
This was a special run that Pacific Rail Shops did for the Badgerland S Gaugers club. This is model #74 (the last two digits of the road number indicates the model number). The only thing the modeler had to do was apply the "DF" decal to the doors. Ed installed metal wheels and Kadee #802 couplers. The model included the grab irons and sill steps already installed.
