Many thanks to Conrad Steeves for the roster data.
This kit includes the special diamond flanger blade, stirrup steps, wind deflectors for the cupola, brake cylinders and handbrake wheels, and a choice of smoke jacks for coal or oil fired stoves (H shape for oil). The air brake reservoir and valve were inside the carbody rather than under the car, so those parts are not included.
The kit is available in either FUD or FXD acrylics... FXD yields the highest quality, while FUD offers great quality at a lower price. The builder will provide trucks, couplers, screws, paint, and lettering.
You can see the kit here- and remember there is free shipping anywhere on the planet, this week, through Sunday, 12 July!
