Train Troll: Model Ships and Narrow Gauge  

Baby Alligator Warping Tug

Coming Soon!

The Baby Alligator proved popular with operations not requiring the capability of the standard size warping tugs. The wheel house was just large enough for the captain and with no above deck sleeping arrangements or cooking facilities. These smaller wood or coal fired tugs were an upgrade from an earlier paddlewheel design, and were built by West & Peachey (Simcoe, Ontario) from 1919 till 1923 for various wood and lumber companies in Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec.

This kit is part of a fund raising project to support the W.D. Stalker, the last remaining operational West & Peachey Alligator Warping Tug. A major portion of the sales go to support the operations of this very important vessel. For additional information (including videos and photos) on the West & Peachey Tugs, please visit the Ontario Visual Heritage Project at
