Product Description

On30 Roof mounted Water Tank.

A small 6ft dia x 6ft high (scale 1200 gallon) perfect for a local water feed for your boiler house or maintenance work shop.

Handy for an engine house for washing out or topping up duties, with the loco still "on shed"

For roofs with 25 to 40 deg angle. While this kit was created with the Loco backshop or 2 stall engine house in mind, the roof mounts can be cut down for shallower angles to be used with a roundhouse.

water tank features:-

-> Water tank is a microply wrapper around an internal core. it has 3 external jigs that hold the wrapper in place while the glues dries.

-> tank lid includes hatch which has many little details.

-> tank hoops and fasteners.

-> water gauge. inludes lathe-truned brass pully and pre-prepared parts

-> hoop rung ladder for access to the top of the tank.

-> piping for inlet feed and outlet pipe.  (note It doesn't have a spout! its not that kind of water tank!!

 

Roof mount features:

-> tank platform etched with planking and nail holes

-> laser cut support structure - not just a bag of sticks!

-> assembly jig.

-> ladder platform - can be positioned anywhere around the tank plaform to suit your structure.

-> 24ft wooden ladder (actually 2 in the fret).  steps are set into the stringer - so its a robust ladder to keep your little people safe - not those ones that are a bear to assemble and the steps keep falling off! You know exactly the ones I mean ;)
