A feature of the operations on the canals of the Black Country and the Birmingham Canal Navigations was the use of specially designed canal tug boats towing trains of cargo-carrying unpowered 'Joey' boats. Tugs were generally around 40ft. in length, sometimes having been cut down from full length (70ft.) narrowboats and having only a large engine room plus crew accommodation. Our 7mm scale range currently features a small number of these vessels, all of which are still in existence, preserved by private owners.
