December 1981 Railroad Model Craftsman featured a crossing tower build with plans by Wayne Wesolowski.

My attempt follows after 37 years of procrastination.

That is such a cool tower; guess I'm gonna have to pilfer this very inspirational idea for the BCRR "if-fin" you don't mind? Seriously though that's one fine tower!!!!

Missed this build first time around somehow. That's some fine carpentry skills Philip, and an excellent prototype as well! Did it ever get painted?

Most useful! Thanks Robert!

Hi Phillip. Really enjoying your builds.
I have the 2007 On30 Annual

Here's the water tank I think you're referring to.

Let me know if you want any other info.
I have all the On30 & Hon3 Annuals.

Thanks Michael!

Here’s a plan in an early Gazette that I calculate to be 23,000 gallons (US).

It was on the Huntsville and Lake of Bays Railway in Ontario.

Your welcome Paul! Thanks for checking it out.

Philip, don't know if you are interested in this one. It is an On30 scale scratch build from one of the modeling magazines.
I've got a PDF of it.

Thanks Louis! Very helpful!

Appreciate your looking Mike!
