Finding oil is hard work - and so is getting it out of the ground. If the
oil is thin enough and there's enough underground pressure, it may flow into
the well on its own. This may continue for a few hours or a few years, but
in time, the pressure drops. Today, nearly 95% of all US oil wells require
pumps to stay in production and one of the most common is the walking beam
or "horse head."
Seen alone or in groups wherever oil is found, this new kit is a great way
to model a part of this vital industry anywhere on your layout. It's typical
of American designs in use since the 1920s and includes a detailed
stationary diesel power plant, walking beam, rear crank and counterweight,
along with the odd-shaped "horse head" front counterweight that gives the
machines their nickname
Designed from the ground up to be a WORKING model, the kit includes a
hidden drive. Whenever you're ready, just add the Universal Gearbox and
Motor Drive Kit #933-1050, sold separately, to power your pump.
Complete instructions and precise engineering produce a great looking, easy
to build replica.
