You will find no greater selection of these great kits from a bygone era than here at MRRHQ's Vintage Model Steam Locomotive Works.

Excerpt from included Roundhouse 425 documents:

"This model is patterned after the 0-6-0 saddle tank type locomotive built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works ( circa 1890-1930 ). The water that is to be heated and used for steam is carried in a tank that is wrapped around the top of the boiler. Fuel is carried in the bunker at the rear. Primarily intended for general service it was used for short distance hauling and for yard duty as a switcher. Its' range was limited by its' supply of water and fuel. It was at home in a small yard within easy reach of fuel and water. A small single door enginehouse in a corner of the yard served as home as well as a place to do light repairs and maintenance and doubling as a yard office and crew quarters.

The saddle tanker saw service on many industrial lines with their sharp curves and short sidings tucked away in the factory parts of town. It was used by logging railways and mining lines to haul loaded cars from the camps at the end of the lines to the mills on the main lines."
