Alright, first off I'm new here. I grew up with model trians my whole life (all scales and gauges) mostly HO. Ever since I joined the military, everything has been in storage, but never forgotten.

Now for my current dillema. I've been bit by the bug again, and had a question. I would really like a water tower that would dispense liquids of a mature nature :laugh: into a glass on a flatbed. I have decided to go G Scale, as this is the obvious choice for this. Has anybody here done or seen this done, and if so do you have pic's? I'm not looking to spend a whole lot of money, as you may know, we don't make a whole lot in my line of work. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

By the way, I was looking at Aristocrafts water tower. I think this just might do the job, but I'm not sure.

LGB has something you might want in G scale.. I'm just trying to remember exactly what it is.

The basic tank cars you can put liquid into and there is a spigot to release the fluids :)

LGB's stuff is sturdy enough you can put a glass onto, I've seen somewhere in a restaurant bar, the owner used to serve drinks to his patrons by putting the glass on a flat car with a small loco and sending it down the line. Something we all should have in our houses ;)

I had an LGB beer barrel car that did the same thing, it was pretty cool around Christmas time, but was lost in a fire.

That is too bad, Christmas tree fires suck :(

We have a fake tree every year now, so there is no need to water it, LOL... Apparently everyone around here got sick of picking up all the needles that a real tree would shed, oh... I was completely agaist switching over to a fake tree, but of course no one ever listens to me



Anyways, have you progessed on this at all OP?

Jeez, your christmas tree caught fire in the house. :eek:

I used to around in a big flatbed truck gathering peoples dicarded trees and burning them in a huge fire pit I had on a farm. Those babies go up quick.
Now I do the fake tree with tons of decorations soo it kinda looks real. :)

I remember have real trees as a kid and dealing with fallen needles that got stuck in the carpet for months afterward. :rolleyes:
