A stagecoach was a four-wheeled, closed vehicle drawn by horses or mules. It was used as public transport, though an uncomfortable one in the American West, where roads where often rocky and rutted. They were sometimes impassible. What was even worse was that they were under constant threat from bandits. They remained a popular form of travel, however, given that the only other option was on horseback or in a wagon. They didn't only carry passengers, but often large bank deposits, important legal documents, and even precious metals, which brought on more dangers.
But they were efficient, and were the primary form of transportation until the railroad was built up and became the primary form of transportation for both humans and cargo. But trains are confined to their tracks, so it wasn't until the introduction of vehicles in the early 1900s that stagecoach use was finally brought to an end.
About Metal Earth
Metal Earth is a collection of intricately designed model building kits. Each kit consists of remarkably detailed laser etching cut onto one or more four-inch square sheets of thin metal. Simply snap out the eight to twelve pieces, bend the tabs to attach them together and create highly-detailed replicas of vehicles and architecture that fit in the palm of your hand. Striking to look at, especially when placed to catch the light, most Metal Earth models take less than an hour to assemble, and on average measure about three inches long when completed. All can be assembled without any glue, although tweezers or needle-nose pliers to bend the tabs will save your child from sore fingers. Because of the tiny size of the components and the complexity of the models, Metal Earth models make ideal gifts for children ten years and older, teens, and even dads and moms!
