Water Tower at Cranberry Yard
Two versions of this classic water tower help it to work on larger scenes where structures aren’t always duplicated, but serve the same purposes with slightly different approaches. This one was designed for branch-line / narrow gauge scenes & is ideal for small city/town and rural settings as well as smaller engine facilities. The most difficult part of this type of model has traditionally been handcrafting the stone base & building the cylindrical water tower itself… but in this case they come as solid resin castings made from hand-built masters. The secret to these is more in the application of paint & color than in the actual construction of the kits. Any kind of additional detailing can be added to the side shed, making it a foreground “contest level” model.
The larger side-shed kit is ONLY available through “Bar Mills Direct” or a “Bar Mills Direct” dealer, whereas the basic version can also be purchased through your local hobby retailer. The water tower itself measures about 1.5″ square… where the larger version measures about 1.5″D x 5″L”
NOTE: The exclusive “Bar Mills Direct” “Side Shed” version also comes with a complete set of pre-painted “Woodland Scenics” figures…. the “Rail Workers” kit, an $17.95 value…. only available directly from Bar Mills.
