A small number of kits were produced at the end of the main build program. This picture shows the main components of a kit for a Sandy River locomotive #2 model.

Note this particular model has no engineered arrangements for sideways displacement of the rear truck, however a similar completed model has run around Precision Scale flex track accurately curved to 48″ radius without problems.
