Dapol has revealed that it will be releasing an animated ‘OO’ scale water tower with proposed availability in the first quarter of 2017.
The water tower will be based on a Great Western Railway design with options for conical and flat top versions as well as static and animated models.
The motorised version will feature a moving fill pipe which rotates 90 degrees with sound effects. In addition a number of sound features have been built in to this version including normal filling and over filling plus speech from the locomotive crews.
Prices are set at £25 for static versions and £50 for motorised models and the latter will be Digital Command Control compatible. The specification includes a flexible delivery pipe, etched detail parts, water valve and positing chains, drain grill, a tether post and a frost prevention heater.
