Double-headed boxcabs make a great road locomotive for heavy hauling ... then you can split the pair apart to perform complex switching tasks in the tightest spaces. Inspired by kitbashes by legendary On30 modelers Sam Barbose and Allen Littlefield, the Little-Bose Twins are LOADED with details.
This is an ideal "first kit" to get started! And loads of fun for experience modelers, too.
Kit includes full body assembly, side sills, interior bulkhead with seats ... PLUS headlight, bell, horn, muffler, steps, grab-irons, intake panels and see-thru mesh panels. Top quality resin castings with illustrated instructions. Headlight may be top-mounted or front-mounted with parts provided. (Kit builds TWO locos.)
