The originally unpainted model was made in Korea by Daiyang Models. It is a 13-ounce model. The second photo is of Ed Kirstatter's model. These have operating ice hatches and sprung trucks. The trucks, appropriate for any PRR P70 coaches, were available separately. However, the wheels were originally gauged for the old NMRA standard, so they will need some adjustment to the current NMRA/NASG standard, if not yet so done. Dick Karnes reviews this model in the Fall 1987 issue of the NASG's Dispatch.
