ALCo C636 Kit (N)
ALCo C636 Kit (N)
The ALCo C636 was the builder's largest single engine diesel-electric locomotive. Built in the final years of the dwindling company, only one example survives today, in operating condition on the Delaware and Lackawanna Railroad. All C636 models rode on ALCo's 3-axle hi-adhesion trucks. The C636 was also exported to Australia for the Pilbara railroads. A list of US operators of the C636 is in the Additional Info section below.

The plastic components in this kit are made with an additive manufacturing technique known as SLA (Stereolithography). Our process is one of the most accurate in its category, producing parts with 25 micron layer thickness (half that of shapeways B-HDA) and a smooth surface finish. However, it will be possible to discern small layer lines upon close inspection with good lighting at a distance of 6-12 inches from the model. Light sanding, painting, and decaling will make these layer lines less obvious, and from a distance the layer lines will disappear. We warranty that our parts are free of defects such as missing components, cracks, holes, and other printing errors, but we do not issue refunds for for normal layering as described above.
