Hello all. It's been a long time since I was on a online forum and it took about 15 minutes to figure out how to introduce myself! I'm a N scaler, member of a model railroad club in the Chicago area.

I am a long-time N-scaler too. I model part of the Milwaukee Road near Seattle, in the 1920s & 1950s. The photos below show my mostly scratch-built N-scale model of Seattle Union Station.

Welcome, my huge N scale layout comprises mostly all kinds of high speed trains. Kato, Tomix, GreenMax, MicroAce selections are practically endless, hundreds go just like that. It's been a while, though, me without buying an N scale high speed shinkansen set, I'm waiting for new ones to show up.

My water tower is scratchbuilt from basswood and the spout is also scratchbuilt, from rolled and soldered brass sheet, and brass tubing. The shingled roof is made from Campbell's HO-scale shingles with extra cuts and closer spacing, to make them look N-scale. I've used the same shingle technique on several structures, including the covered bridge and the lighthouse keeper's cottage, shown below.The "water" inside my water tank is cast epoxy.

Your water tower looks very good. Fine work! (y)
