Railroad Tug Boat

Have Ye Ever Been To Sea, Billy?

Once a common sight on big city harbors, the Railroad Tug was a specialized version of the familiar tug boat.

In order to improve visibility over freight cars on the deck of a carfloat, the Railroad Tug was built with a taller pilot house.

Starting in the 1920s, many railroads began modernizing their fleets with diesel-electric tugs.

Not only did they use similar technology to the then-new diesel locomotives, many were painted in the same colorful schemes.

These newer tugs remained in service for years, with a few serving new owners yet today.

Ready to handle chores in any busy HO harbor, Walthers Railroad Tug Boat builds into a detailed replica of the later diesel-electric designs.

It features the tall pilot house, along with various roof details, towing bitts, masts and a host of other details.

The kit builds into a waterline model with no lower hull detail, so it's easy to add to your new or existing scenery.
