    1. Which one pushes coal barges? tug boat or a tow boat?

    2. How do I build one in N scale? Anyone make one before? I need it to be lighted, too.

    This is what I need to build....

    I believe that is a tow boat. I found a thread I liked by jmarksberry that discussed his construction of a tow boat and includes N scale drawings. It may be a good place to start as you research the size of these boats and their characterisitics. Sounds like a great project! boat

    I made one in HO scale out of wood blocks, carboard, and a small plastic box for the pilot house.

    Happy scratchbuilding!

    Someone else had a thread here just a couple of weeks ago on this same subject.
