In World War II, the railroad network that stretched across Europe played an important role as a means of transporting various equipment and supplies. The Allies and the partisans cooperating with them frequently attacked and sabotaged German railway networks to disrupt them, so Germany developed and ran various armored trains to protect their cargo. These armored trains consisted of various vehicles such as steam locomotives and command vehicles covered with armor. Infantry vehicles were also used; in addition to being equipped with a machine gun, it also had an 8cm grenade launcher. The unit was also equipped with a gun turret, and the Schwarer Suzag (s.Sp.) Artilleriwagen was equipped with a Panzer III N-type 7.7cm KwK37L/24 gun turret. In addition, a car would be included with communication equipment and medical staff. Each vehicle had 20mm thick armor and weighed about 18 tons. They were produced from 1943 to 1945.

This model kit from Dragon features a newly molded armored steam locomotive, gun car, command vehicle and infantry vehicle; a freight car for transporting tanks and a 38(t) tank to be carried on it are also included. The rail and the embankment base are also included so the kit can be displayed as a scene. The models are all highly detailed, even for their small scale, with a powerful mechanical finish.
