N-2050 Sylvan 258' Great Lakes Freighter "Canaller" 19-1/4" x 3-

Cast polyurethane kit - details molded in - easy assembly

Kit includes all parts, fittings, and accessories for a complete model, including etched brass stanchions, and a fully detailed wheelhouse interior. Main structural assembly is simplified by the use of one piece castings.

Model measures 19.25" in length and 3.25" wide, representing a 258' long freighter

Our Great Lakes Freighter is patterned after a St. Lawrence "canaller". While canallers have the look of a typical freighter, they were much shorter, as their size was restricted by the locks on the St. Lawrence River prior to the Seaway opening in 1959.

This is an ideal prototype, as no selective compression is required to have a "layout" sized boat. It is also suitable for most modeling eras, as these boats sailed from the turn of the century, with some surviving up into the early 1980's. Common commodities for these boats would include coal, grain, cement, and iron ore.

Additional mid-sections (described below) are available separately for those who require a longer boat.

Great Lakes Freighter -- Mid Section Only

Order kit number: N-2050M

After the St. Lawrence Seaway opened in 1959, many "canallers" were stretched to increase their length to add cargo capacity. Our mid-section adds 72 scale feet (5.25" in N-Scale) to our N-2050 kit. Mid section includes cargo hatches, etched brass stanchions, and line for railings. Two mid sections may be added to the basic kit, and still be prototypical to some stretched boats.

Please note, this kit contains only the parts for a mid section, and does not build into a complete boat on its own.

Also available in HO-Scale

Our Freighter looks great being helped into position by any of our Great Lakes Tug Boats order: (N-2025, N-2026).

Also available in HO-Scale
