Who would have thought one man could empty ashes from aloco and fill a gondola. In less than an hour? This kit shows how it is done!
Over 35 highly detailed handpoured cast pewter parts along with scale lumber, rail and brass wire make up this realistic kit.
Wood, pewter and steel kit of the Robertson Company designed conveyor to catch hot cinders dumped by the yard crews from under the steam engine and lift them up and dump them into a waiting gondola (Please wait until the cinders cool down (don't catch your wood gondola on fire!))
Footprint 5.75" x 1.125" (not all items shown included)

I really liked the way each sub-assembly was individually packaged. The details were crisp and the metal was easy to clean. I appreciated the color suggestions that were recommended. My plan sheet was faded and the top view section details were hard to make out. For me, installation is interesting as you have to contend with height, and distance but also the depth of the pit. I "dug" the pit first and located everything off of that. The final model needs to be built in place. When "planted" in place it looks great.....
