A little history.
The mud wagon was one of the most common passenger carriers in the late 18 hundreds together with the Celerity wagon. The often shown stagecoach in Western movies of the Concord type was expensive compared to the other cars and of heavy construction. The Mud and Celerity wagon where lightweight and could handle the often bad and muddy roads much better. The prototype of the model is a quite large wagon with three seats inside. It could be equipped with more seats on the outside as period photos often show wagons with many passengers seated on the top of the wagon. The kit is based on a wagon is located at the Sealy Stable museum in old town San Diego. It is believed to once have been used by Wells Fargo to transport passengers and goods between San Diego, California and Yuma, Arizona.
