The directions are not made for beginners. So it doesn't make sense if you don't know what a grabiron or the stirrups are. It is a very nice car.

Simple kit for quick assembly. If you take the time to colour the deck to resemble wood then mask prior to painting then it takes a bit longer. Replaced the grabs with wire ones. Lots of room underneath to add lead shot if you want bring the weight up to NMRA standards.

This is an excellent beginner's kit since the demise of the Athearn Blue Box. First, it is simple. Second, it goes together fast. Third, it will help you learn how to paint and decal since it is an undecorated kit. Fourth, it is inexpensive enough that you can make several of these and not break the bank. Fifth though it lacks a 'brake' system, you normally would not be able to see it. Finally, the other detail that does show is great, including the wood grain on the deck and the pockets where load attachments would go.

Absolutely a 5 star kit. Good grief.....go to Google and ask what grabirons and stirrups are. It's not that big a showstopper.
