¹ Can be used for RTR Athearn passenger cars provided the modeler can remove body from the frame, and remove the factory installed weights. The samples we received had the bodies glued to the frame using a liquid styrene glue. The factory weights were affixed to the frame using either contact cement or double sided adhesive tape.
