Garden Railway Water Tower Project
While searching the web for pictures of water towers that I might try to duplicate for the D&L Railroad I stumbled upon a set of plans for a real 47,000 gallon wooden water tower. I am building a scale model of that tower using cedar. The scale is 1/20.3 (narrow gauge scale)
The struggle with the roof.... I think it finally fits!
Ready to shingle - note the cup of "cedar shake" shingles... wonder how long this will take!??!
6 days later...
test "fitting" outside!
Finally got back to the project and completed the plumbing and spout support structure. The spout is made up of 5 pieces of copper pipe and one tapered section made of sheet brass.
The web site that has the plans is: http://www.cwrr.com/Drawings/ My thanks to the folks who made these plans available.
