Product Information

Wood water tanks on towers could be found just about anywhere across the US throughout the golden age of railroading. Whether in an industrial setting, out on a farm, or trackside, water was always needed for a variety of purposes.
 
This kit also comes with a small pumphouse, where a small gasoline or distillate engine would have driven a pump to keep the tank filled.
 
The laser-cut wood kit uses Tab & Slot and Peel & Stick technology and includes easy-to-build access ladders with jigs, cast resin column footers, styrene tube delivery pipe, and 3-ply birch plywood tank on simulated steel tower. Highlights of the pump house include milled siding, rolled roofing, and opening door with hinge and latch details. When assembled, the water tank measures 8" 20.3cm tall with a 4 x 3-1/4" 10.1 x 8.2cm base while the pump house stands 3 x 2 x 2-3/4" 7.6 x 5 x 6.9cm high.
