This model is based on the GWR tower which was to be found elsewhere particularly in the BR days. The height is correct for platform mounting. Away from the platform is was mounted on a plinth. It has a central pipe which runs through the main column which can be used to refill the tank. The crane arm is fitted with water seals which allows it to be swung out to the loco. The valve is opened by a gentle pull on the chain hanging at the side, allowing the water to run out through the real leather ‘bag’, just like the real thing. There is also a drain grating and brich surround to catch the scale drips! Construction is by soft solder and adhesives. The difficult bit is rolling the conical tower and the drum, this can be done for you at an extra charge.
