An elevated water tank of this nature is normally placed next to a steel coke quench tower to douse burning coke with a measured amount of water. It is usually designed to be 'bolted' to the concrete structure. This particular tower is designed as a standalone structure so it can be used in a variety of situations such a quench/fire tower for a grain silo as pictured above or as a water/liquid reservoir for a factory building. The footprint for this tower is 4 in x 4 in x 10 ½ in (h). The standard color is dark gray however other options are light gray, white and black. See our OnLine Store for more pictures and pricing.
The design for the water tower has been updated. It now has a much less bulky more realistic look as shown in the photos below. The tank can be ordered in different colors and with one of several railroad/industrial names. The water tower footprint is approximately 5 inches by 5 inches. It is about 8 inches tall from the base to the platform. The tank is 4 inches tall with an elliptical top and flat bottom. Total height is roughly 12 inches.
The Hemispherical bottom water tower is a tall imposing structure meant to high-light a steam locomotive yard or even an old city scene. Various tank diameters and heights are available. Total structure height varies between 20 and 24 inches depending on design.
The O Scale general purpose fueling tower would look great as part of a locomotive service yard storing water or fuel or even in an industrial yard as a water tower. The tower is approximately 4 inches wide at the base and 12 inches high. The tank can be ordered in different colors and with one of several railroad/industrial names. Please navigate to the ON LINE Store (Trackside Structures) for options and prices.

The design for this sand tower is different from the tall skinny versions normally sold. This design offers a more substantial solid looking structure. It was made to fit over track and have the locomotive pass through it on its way out of the service yard. The tower stands about 7 ¾ inches high. There is about 6 inches of clearance to the bottom of the sanding chute. The tower is 3 inches by 4 ¾ inches at the base.
We can design a double track version. Just contact us and let us know the necessary width and track center line to center line you need
This is a new design for the sand tower group. The design is the more standard version seen on most railroads. This tower can service locomotives from both sides on two tracks The main tower stands about 13 inches high. The design has changed from the prototype shown in the photos. There will be one sand pipe on the main tower instead of the two shown in the photo. The loading pipe will connect to the upper part of the sand tank rather then to the dust ventilator. The top hoses are meant for the older diesels with top loading sand chutes. The hoses on ground level are for the more standard diesel. Since this is a custom structure built to order the customer can make changes to dimensions to fit their layout.
