The Steam Tug EXETER HO
Description: Our polyurethane resin hull & parts have extensive
detail that will save many hours of work. We have been able to mold the entire
bulwark and deck edge guard, running lights on pilot house roof, roof on
forward hatch and detailed cargo hatches etc... Our molded planked pilot
house walls have life preservers, handrails, fire extinguisher, detailed
doors & cabinets. We use the finest pewter castings for fittings
Information: This resin hullmodel is unique as it was designed for
model Railroaders and no model ship building skills are required. The Exeter
is a freelance design that incorporates features from some prototype vessels.
Our HO tug represents a wooden hull steam tug built for RR car float service.
This is evident by her "Boot Heel" pilothouse, which raises the forward part
of the pilothouse so the skipper can see over the freight cars on the car
float. Along with RR service the " EXETER" is designed to be a jack of all
trades with small passenger & freight cabins in the after portion of
Beam 18' 6"

The above specifications except for length and beam, are strictly bogus !!!
Tug Boats, like Short Line Railroad Equipment, beg to be modified, weathered
and cluttered.We sincerely hope you enjoy building and installing this unique
piece of model railroad scenery on your layout or diorama.
