Introducing a beautiful miniature brown water tank for steam based locomotives. Functioning water tanks were so important to the operation of the railroad that employees were assigned solely to the task of checking their status on a regular basis, to ensure that water was always available to the locomotives.

A tender is attached to the back of each steam locomotive, to hold water and fuel. When the locomotive stops for water, the fireman climbs to the rear of the tender pulls down a water spout, and then pulls on a rope to open the valve, which releases water into the tank of the tender. From there, the water is piped to the boiler where it is heated to create steam to provide the propulsion for the pistons and drive the locomotive.

There are minute details such as a water spout and barrel type metal binding holding the round wood planks together. The exterior is Brown color for easy painting with most acrylics or modeling paints. The entire structure measures 3 inches wide 3 inches deep and 4 inches high. Figures not included, house only.

About the Company: Gold Rush Bay is dedicated to making the most realistic assembled Architectural Miniatures. Our goal is to have the largest catalog of architecture and Interior designs pre-assembled. Architecture has notoriously been hard to model in miniature by hand due to its intricate geometries. By offering assembled and color products instead of kits, the modeler can get more details in their models with less effort. Thus our highly detailed miniatures are favored by train enthusiasts and dollhouse collectors alike who want to bring their miniature worlds to life. We will continue to invent ways to produce the most intricate designs for collectors. Each Gold Rush Bay product is proudly made in the United States.
