Product Description

This is based on a slug engine created from a former diesel switcher.

Basic dimensions and notes:

  • Shell is made 0.030" thick overall
  • Length is 4.86"
  • Width is 0.97"
  • Inside width is 0.91" Designed to fit over Life-Like Proto series switcher chassis

Certain railroads cut a panel into the side of the slug's hood for a battery case. The location of this panel is marked, on the inside face of the hood only. I have included a sketch in the photos showing the design of its location. The area of this panel is 0.020" thick to make it easier to remove required material to accomodate it.

This model is also available as a package of three hoods.
