3-Pack Kit !  

These TINY TINY cars in N scale are just the cars to use with the 13-ton and 18-ton Climax A models.   While N Scale Kits make the proper 25' log cars, nothing has ever been made before that is appropriate for late 19th-century standard-gauge mining cars that are sufficiently small and lightweight to be used with Climax A's on mining tramways.  If you have N geared steam in mining, you need little cars like this!

These 7-yard cars were designed by Rison (San Francisco) in 1861 for the V&T, and modified in the field by them.  They remained in ore-carrying service in Nevada until 1917.

    Ore car perched on a dime       Cars come with LINK AND PIN pockets!

These are a fun craftsman-type kit.  I've included the resin parts, two diameters of wire, stripwood for the running boards, MT low-profile wheelsets (larger flange wheels will not clear the hopper), manufactured etched-brass brakewheels, and two types of couplers -  link and pin pockets and an EXTREMELY short-shank (fixed) dummy knuckle.  MT "Z" scale couplers (not included) will work as well.  These cars really are too small for conventional "N" MT couplers.  

 $17 per 3-pack  +  shipping charge per order

These cars were built specifically to serve mining operations with my Climax "A" locomotives!

Currently under production.
