This title has been long out of print but Arizona Hobbies has been able to secure some remaining inventory in new condition.

The gondola was a type of car critical to the steel industry, whose tremendous volume of traffic enabled the railroad to earn the nickname, The Little Giant. Used to haul raw materials to, move semi-finished products between plants, and finally to deliver finished products to customers.
