Walthers Cornerstone 933-3817 | Steel Water Tank - Building Kit | N Scale

Description

Add detail to your steam locomotive servicing facility with the Walthers Cornerstone Steel Water Tank. A must-have for any steam-era N Scale layout, equipment like this could be found in terminals large and small. Water was vital to railroad operations in the days of steam. Thousands of gallons were needed to keep the engines hot and the railroad running. As locomotives grew bigger, older tanks were unable to meet demand. When steel plate became cheap enough to use as a building material in the 1920s, railroads began replacing decaying wooden towers with all-steel designs. These larger capacity tanks were usually erected away from the tracks, supplying water to thirsty locos via standpipes. This allowed the most versatility, as the standpipes could be erected where they were needed most. This was a common option for engine terminals and some smaller stations, where there was simply no room for the big tanks. Many of these steel tanks lasted beyond the days of steam and a few still supply water to shops or other company facilities.
 
Perfect for serving your biggest and best steam power, the Steel Water Tank kit offers all the versatility of the prototype. It requires a small amount of layout space and comes with two standpipes which you can install wherever you want. Detailed parts are molded in black plastic, while complete instructions make construction fast and fun. See other Cornerstone N Scale railroad and maintenance structures here!
