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

Re: KF60

Next question … has anyone got a decent side-on of the "guards box" attached to a KF60 e.g. at Sandoling? I presume they were fabricated and "attached" to the rear of a standard wagon with a considerable overhang. I can only find 3/4 rear shots which don't show this.

Re: MTC X70

Finally got around to looking at this and sort of solved it with a cheap and cheerful hack. Took a NEM Kadee coupler and disconnected the head by pushing the copper pin out.

Re: MTC X70

***WARNING*** Finally got around to looking in detail and give them a run out. Just one real issue (and it's big)… fixed couplings. While they are detailed and to scale (and can be removed) they do not have a standard box which allows replacement Kadees. The only solution is to have them in fixed fo...
