The Log Dump Station provides real railroad action.
Three easy-to-build Trackside Shanty kits feature hand-painted details.
Easy to Use & Enjoy
Unpack the box and get ready for some real railroad fun. Start by snapping together the giant Power-Loc track layout and arranging the train on the tracks. First comes the diesel locomotive dressed in its Santa Fe colors. Next it’s the freight cars. Should the log dump car go behind the locomotive or just ahead of the caboose? It’s your choice. Use the mountain paper and support to create a unique tunnel. Then it’s time to hook up the crossing gates and log dump facility to the tracks so they’re ready for operation. Build up the trackside shanties and finish off your scene with the figures, signs, utility poles, trees and vehicles. Your railroading adventure is on its way as you control the train, deciding where it stops and which way it goes.
Operating Accessories Add More Fun
Operating accessories bring real railroad action and lots of added fun to this set. Safety gates on the dual crossing gate lower to warn oncoming traffic as the train approaches. The gates remain down until the last train car goes through the crossing. At the log dump station, log loads are easily dumped into the loading bin from the waiting train. Set up your train in no time with the durable Power-Loc track that snaps together instantly and locks securely. The attached roadbed means you can put your layout anywhere, even on the living room carpet.
