CSX Weathered Tie Loader (3pk)

CSX Weathered Tie Loader (3pk)


Micro Trains Line


Maintaining miles and miles of track is a never ending task for railroads.  Mechanical tie loaders ride atop gondolas, picking up discarded ties next to the repaired sections of track.  Tie loaders are equipped with clamping and lifting hydraulics that allow the tie loader to move from one car to the next as the MOW train moves forward.  Our tie loader model is based on the prototype and is a multimedia kit* cast in color.  All three gondolas in each set will come with railroad tie loads.

The tie loader is made of 3D printed and resin cast parts with an etched-metal claw and includes cab window decals. Loader parts come cleaned, unassembled and unpainted.  Ramp will be laser-cut laser board, painted yellow and unassembled.  Gondola side extensions will be laser board and decorated to match weathered gondola, but not installed. Two rail tie loads will be resin cast and decorated.
