ID:	966754 Let's see some of your water towers that you have made/built. Kit built or scratchbuilt. I'll start out with two of mine.
    First one is total scratchbuilt out of cardstock and strip wood.
    Second one is a combination of an old Lionel tank shell and cardstock and stripwood.

    I currently have 5 water towers on the BCRR all scratch built and none finished; as I work on them when the notion strikes; so here are the towers. Thanx for the topic and opportunity to show our work . Sorry about the photo quality; I have a flip phone.

          I did a thread on a small water tower a couple years ago. Check it out here: https://railroad-line.com/node/38670
