Concrete Coaling Tower



Awesome!



When steam ruled the rails, the coaling tower was a familiar sight at every engine terminal.

Some also stood alone on main lines, ready to service passing trains that might require refueling along the way.

While early designs were made of wood, later models were made of fire-proof concrete.

Hoppers of coal would be spotted for unloading above a covered dump pit.

Lifting machinery hauled he coal to the top, where it was stored in the bin.

Gravity and positionable chutes took over, delivering a steady stream of coal into waiting tenders below.

Many of these durable structures outlived their usefulness, but proved too expensive or difficult to tear down.

A few still stand, stripped of their steel hardware, a monument to days gone by.

Whether alive with action or quiet and abandoned, this model can be the focal point of your engine service facilities.

It's complete with covered pit, machinery house, lifting equipment and positionable chutes to serve two tracks.

As the prototypes go, this model represents a medium sized tower, making it ideal for layouts large or small.

The plastic parts feature realistic concrete and steel detailing and are molded in realistic colors.

A complete set of instructions and decal signs are included.

  • Tower and shed measure 4-1/8" x 6-3/8 "x 11" (10.3cm x 15.9cm x 27.5cm)
  • Assembly kit
