Water tanks were the most frequently seen utility structures during the steam era of railroading. Operating timetables were constrained by the size of a locomotive’s water system and the distance between service facilities. A water tank provides an excellent structure for a model railroad due to its visibility, the natural creation of an operating point on the layout and offers other scenic possibilities. The model which you are about to build represents a branchline water tank of the late 1800’s through early 1900’s vintage. It is suitable for installation on either a Standard or Narrow Gauge layout, along the right-of-way, at a small division servicing yard, as an adjunct to an out-of-the-way passenger or freight stop, or as an industrial water tank.
