Canadian National Railways built thirteen single ended snowplows at their Transcona Shops in 1938, # 55600-55612. In 1954, another plow was built to this plan at Moncton, but was of all- welded construction. It was numbered 65613.
This S scale part provides the body for these plows. No rivet detail has been included- there will be some texture on the part from printing, and it's far easier to sand and prime first, then add rivet detail using surface detail decals from either Archer or MicroMark.
Of course, 65613, being a totally smooth welded plow, will require no rivets, is the easiest of this series to model.
You will need to buy the cupola (available at my shop on Shapeways:
) for this car. I recommend cutting your own floor to fit from .040" styrene and add body bolsters to suit your choice of trucks. Screw bosses are provided for 2-56 screws to mount the floor and trucks. These are cored with pilot holes- you will want to drill and tap, or drill and use self- tapping screws.
A regular freight truck can be used on the rear. If you use one on the front as well, be sure to move it back a bit to provide clearance under the plow blade.

In 1939, four closely related double ended plows were built at Transcona, # 55696-55699. These are also available!
Thanks for looking at this model!
