About Lackawanna: K1002

Lackawanna | Sea-going tug of 1900. This small steamer tug model is perfect for the less experienced modeler. She represents the state of the art in kit manufacturing with a carved basswood hull, photo etched brass pilothouse and deck plates, and numerous cast fittings. Lackawanna worked the East Coast, pulling barges of coal from Pennsylvania to the industrial centers of the northeast and south. She was painted white to show off the clean burning qualities of the hard anthracite coal she burned. Her yacht-like appearance made her stand out amongst her fellow workboats.

The Sailing ship Lackawanna was a majestic vessel that dominated the seas in the late 19th and early 20th century. Built in 1878 by the renowned shipbuilders, Harlan and Hollingsworth, the Lackawanna was a three-masted wooden schooner with a length of 225 feet and a beam of 40 feet. It was named after the Lackawanna River in Pennsylvania, where the ship’s owner, the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad Company, was headquartered. The Lackawanna was primarily used for transporting coal and iron ore from the Great Lakes region to the East Coast, but it also made occasional trips to Europe and South America.
