Points in small yards

I'm building a small shunting layout - based on small US designs. i.e. loco and 2 wagons and 3 short sidings serving various industries. I'm sure such arrangements also exist/existed in China.

Water towers

In the middle of dressing my layout and need to build a depot water tower. However I've not been able to find any pictures in my library or on the web. Does anyone have any or can describe a prototypical construction?

Cheers
