Hello,

Posted Image B-T-1D

I have built a new wooden water-tower for our station.

And the old water-tower looked that way. On the right in the picture.

I hope you like it.

Greeting,

Great job and one that could be easily converted to a Wild West theme as well.

I really like your layout, and honestly the old water tower is very nice as well, just a newer style. I'd find a way to use both, just in different settings.

Train Accessories On! *y*

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Well that is simply stunning!  *wub* I love that technique. What can't be seen from that pic is that it has water inside.  :-P Oddly though I can't see any steam trains in your layout...  X-D (I did find a few in your folder though.)

Impressive Captain!
Did you have to buy a lot of those brown pieces?

At the moment, there is really no steamengine! However, I am going to build one.

I wanted to build a roundhouse. I had bought the brown parts for it.
A too big object is but such a roundhouse, for our layout.

Very nice.  Have you seen Cale Leiphart's water tower?  Yours reminds me a little bit of his.  By the way, your layout there is looking pretty spiffy.

I try with something, built three to four hours at the water-tower.

I have looked at several water-towers on Brickshelf. It this is possibly the water-towers look well.
I have liked this with the water pump very much. Therefore I built it so.



There is a little lake at our layout. The water-tower stands next to the lake. I have put a pipe of the pump to the lake.
With the water from the lake the water-tower is filled up.
Here one picture of the water-tower, how it stands at the layout.

Gives our layout some new pictures on Brickshelf.

Sorry to be late replying in this tread (I've got some trouble with Internet...  >:-(  )

Captain K, your moc is really nice! I like the simplicity of the design, and the nice details and extra like the small "engine hall", the fisherman, and the pipe.
It's full of life, just with few minifigs.
great work! *y*
I have nefer seen wood watertower in my life, but it looks like the ones that we can see in the US movies and cartoon X-D
