City Water Tower Built-Up

New Walthers City Water Tower Stands Out on Any HO Scale Layout

Milwaukee, WI -- Walthers announces the release of its new Cornerstone Series® Built-up City Water Tower in HO Scale. This layout-ready model will be available in March 2003.

A landmark for small towns, big cities and factories since the early 1900s, steel water towers like these are still common today. Because they can be seen for miles, they are often used to "advertise" the name of a town or a company. Proudly boasting the name in big, bold letters, they are also used to project civic pride with slogans such as "100 Years of Progress." You'll also find them at hospitals, industrial complexes, college campuses and military bases.

These impressive water towers, which were built until the 1960s, hold thousands of gallons of water in reserve to meet peak demand. Many are constructed on higher ground to increase line pressure.

Fully assembled and ready to add to your layout, the City Water Tower comes in your choice of black, 933-2825, or silver, 933-2826; each sells for $29.98. The model features old-style latticework legs, a half-round tank bottom, conical tank roof and a "concrete" base. Cage and tank are included for extra realism. For the final authentic touch, a set of alphabet decals is included so you can personalize your model with your choice of names. The tower measures 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" x 11" high (9.3 cm x 9.3 cm x 27.5 cm).

The HO Cornerstone Series Built-up City Water Tower is coming from Walthers in March. For more information about the entire line of Walthers products or to locate a dealer, visit Walthers on the Internet at walthers.com. Phone 414-527-0770 or write Walthers, PO Box 3039, Milwaukee, WI 53201-3039.
