Brand: Walthers Cornerstone
Part #: 933 - 2903
Based on an Ogle design, the Modern Coaling Tower will be a focal point in any engine terminal. And towers like this were also built on the mainline to refuel engines on the road. The model features realistic "concrete" walls plus detailed chutes and mechanisms. Like the prototype, it can serve three tracks at once, making it an ideal choice for maximizing service in minimum space. The same sturdy construction that made these towers appealing to railroads also made them hard to get rid of. With its metal parts removed for scrap, the tower could still be standing in a contemporary scene, a reminder of how things used to be.
