These steam tugs were seen all over the Great Lakes from 1900 until their conversion to diesel during the 1950's. Our kit is a waterline model, based upon the Great Lakes Towing Company's 81' L.C. Sabin. Looks great with our barge (HO-1008, N-1008), or helping to dock our freighter (HO-1050, N-1050). N-Scale tug model measures 6.25" X 1.75".
