Product Information

Designed to move molten iron, the prototypes of these cars were equipped with a different style of ladle, which resembles a large bucket. These were very common at operations with pig casting machines, where the ladles were fitted with either single or double wings so they could be lifted and tipped for pouring.
 
The kit includes the complete car with details and trucks; the ladle can be built in the standard version (no wings), or with single or double wings for pig casting service. Complete instructions are included.
