The excavator has good flexibility for a variety of layout construction scenes.
Two new flatcars from Menards include the no. 279-3178 Chesapeake & Ohio flat with die-cast metal cement mixer (left) and the no. 279-3476 Pennsylvania RR flatcar with die-cast metal excavator with lights and sound. The cars cost $24.99 each plus shipping (ship free to your local Menards). Visit your neighborhood Menards to g to www.menards.com.

The latest flatcars from Menards have two industrial strength die-cast vehicle loads: A cement mixer and and an excavator that his light and sound action. The cars are the no. 279-3178 Chesapeake & Ohio flat with die-cast metal cement mixer and the no. 279-3476 Pennsylvania RR flatcar with die-cast metal excavator with lights and sound. The cars cost $24.99 each plus shipping (ship free to your local Menards). Visit your neighborhood Menards to g to www.menards.com.

The excavator comes securely strapped onto the car (The cable ties are removable). The arm and cab move, and with the press of a button you get a flashing yellow light and excavator sounds.

The flashing light can be seen just below the excavator's arm.

The cement mixer is a heavy load that comes secured to the flatcar. The cement company logo 'Chesapeake Bay' suggests the cursive style of the Chesapeake & Ohio's lettering.

The cement mixer is based on the Mack truck chassis.

Park this baby at a construction site, place a worker or two, and you're ready for road construction!
