Norfolk & Western Class J 611 Model Kit by Corrugated Container Corp.
Powhatan Arrow Passenger Car
Available only at the Virginia Museum of Transportation
Last year our friends at Corrugated Container, Corp. created an incredible cardboard model of the 611 and tender. This year they have designed a passenger car to add to the train. The completed model is about 22 inches long, 4.5 inches high, and about 3 inches across. The kit includes two printed, pre-cut pieces and complete instructions for assembly. Additional information about the Powhatan Arrow, Corrugated Container Corp., copyright, etc. is printed on the underside of the model. None of this is visible when the model is complete and set in place. Where the 611 engine and tender have a glossy finish, the passenger car has a high luster matt finish.
Although it is not intended to be a child’s toy, it is sturdy enough for an older child to enjoy. The kit is designed for an adult to assemble, but it would also make an ideal parent/child project. At only $5.99 each, why not buy several and make yourself a complete train?!? When you purchase this model, you are helping to Fire Up the 611!
611 engine and tender sold separately.
Our cardboard model kits of the Class J 611 and the Powhatan Arrow passenger car were designed, manufactured, and donated by Corrugated Container Corp. in Roanoke, Virginia. VMT appreciates their suppport!
