Steam Engine Servicing Facility Necessity|
essential part of any steam-era layout, this kit is based on a North American
prototype. It's typical of those found at smaller terminals, stations, junctions,
helper terminals and along secondary and branch lines. Wood towers were also found
on mainlines, especially before more modern concrete towers came along, and many
survived until the end of steam--long enough to serve big 2-8-8-2s and other large
engines. The model features realistic wood siding, chutes for two tracks and a
hopper dump shed.
