The Industrious Helper
Loaded with ties and ballast, the construction site train is pushed in the direction of today's section of track. The entire train tells of the dusty and sweaty work on the track. The refined modelling of the paint to represent dust and dirt is easy to see on all of the cars. In connection with the four maintenance cars and in addition to the dump car and the stake car, the train also has the typical living quarters / workshop car including the crew car to go with it. This summer new item for 2020 is being presented on the construction site of your model railroad true to the prototype and its use.
Prototype: Four different design German Federal Railroad (DB) cars, for use in construction trains. A three-axle "Rebuild Car" as Crew/Workshop Car 587, a 2-axle passenger car as Crew/Workshop Car 476, a type Kbs 443 2-axle stake car, and a type F-z 120 2-axle dump car. The cars look as they did around 1978.
