Scale 169’ 3 Track Carfloat
This kit represents a 3 Track Carfloat built in the early 1950's and was used in the everyday transfer of freight cars from shore to shore including many interchange operations between different railroads. It features a welded steel hull and will accommodate 8, 40' rail cars (3 per outer set of rail and 2 on the middle).
Our kit consists of highly detailed resin castings featuring scale weld lines, scuttle hatches, cleat bases and toggle pockets already cast in place along with 3 cast resin track bumpers. The parts in this kit require very little cleanup allowing quick assembly time.
One of the unique details of our kit is the Micro Engineering Company's code 100 nickel silver rail cast into place on the deck allowing you the option of electrifying your track.
Highly detailed Britannia metal castings including cleats, bridge hooks, and tire bumpers (these are now cast resin) along with rope and chain allow you to build an accurate model of a very recognizable, everyday element of water front operations. Looks great with one of our 92' Diesel Railroad Tugboats or 92' Steam Railroad Tugboats pushing it!
*Note: We have designed our Carfloat Kit using prototype drawings and photos. We have tried to get as close to prototype dimensions as possible. We make no claims as to compatibility with other manufacturer's carfloat and/or float bridge dimensions.
*Due to the weight of this kit there will be $3.00 added to the cost of shipping.
just received my car float and pontoon bridge WOW. Can't wait to get started. The casting is very crisp and the detail great. Thanks you and I'm looking forward to future kits from you.
