McCabe MoW Speeder
The B.T.S. McCabe Lumber Co. Speeder was built in the company shops. One day, the railroad superintendent realized that a larger speeder was needed for track maintenance and the order went out to the shop crew to get busy. An old boxcar body, a truck chassis, and some great planning on the part of the crew provided the main ingredents for a unique and handy speeder.
The body kit consists of laser-cut basswood, plywood, cardstock, and brass & white metal detail castings. The standard features of B.T.S. kits are there... positionable window sashes, slot and tab construction, brass door knobs, unique character, and well-engineered construction providing fast and easy assembly. And the seats, load, and driver are included!
The fully-assembled mechanism is American Made, tested, and ready to run right out of the box. It features a sheet brass frame, lost-wax end beams and steps, can-type motor, and NWSL wheelsets.
All are limited edition kits!
