    The easiest and cheapest in the long run would be to go to Hobby Lobby, Micheals or any floral craft center and get one there. They usually cost less than $20.

    As mentioned before, a craft store could hook you up with a cheap small pump - the kind they use for table top fountain displays..

    Yea i was thiniking about going out buying a small table top water fall and taking the pump out of it. I dont need a lot of water as long as it will move the water to the top of a mountaion. And this is going on a N Scale so the mountion wont be that tall.

    Note, though, that water on an N scale layout will still be 1:1 water.

    My local Harbor Freight store also sells submersible table top fountain pumps.
