Jersey Central #1000 Box Cab

Gas / Propane / Diesel Hydraulic or Electric Powered - 2.5" or 3.75" Scale

Jersey Central #1000 Box Cab Locomotive

Early non-steam (oil/gasoline/diesel or pure electric) engines were often built using car body technology. This style locomotive is called a box cab. Our model recalls an Alco-GE-Ingersoll-Rand 300-hp switcher, one of the earliest successful box cabs.

The RMI JC-1000 box cab is available in either 2.5" scale with either electric drive or 9 HP Honda gas powered or 3.75" E scale which can also be electric powered or by a 22 HP Kubota Gas, Propane or Diesel engine.
