The Walthers Cornerstone Built-ups HO Scale Wood Water Tank is a typical wooden water tank based on those used on railroads from coast to coast. Constructed to satisfy steam locomotives' thirst for water, this fully assembled and decorated model adds instant steam-era realism to any layout. Appearing early in the 20th century, tanks like this were a fixture of railroad facilities until the last days of steam. It's perfect for busy engine terminals, small town yards and near smaller depots where engines were watered during the station stop. Fully assembled, the model features detailed wooden support timbers while the tank is moulded in the same main colour as other Trackside Built-up buildings. The spout on the Wood Water Tank can be moved to either the up or down position to add more action to any scene. Use the Wood Water Tank among other Cornerstone HO Scale railroad buildings.
