    At least I think it started out life as a Tyco;

    Now, where did I see the prototype for this?

    It makes me wish I had a little 4-6-0 I could park in the scene.

    Great looking tower. I like that spout with the hood on it. Did you add that?

    Yes, Loren...

    You don't have to look to close to see the "hood" is a section of a wooden boxcar and the spout is part drinking straw, part Cornerstone piping kit and part roof detail air vent, also from Cornerstone.

    Thanks for the interest!
