Historically, the Engineering Department of a railroad had the responsibility to design, build, and upkeep many structures to keep the railroad running. These varied from a lowly telephone booth or outhouse to the massive roundhouse. For the moment, let us put the bridges that came under their jurisdiction aside, and feature all those other structures that the railroads built for their own purposes.

As always, both prototype and model pictures are welcome.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

How about a water tank. This ones on the Suncoast Central. Looks like there's some upkeep about to happen.

Ice house on the right, oil house on the left.


Old boxcar shed.


sand house


ash hoist


I am not sure if this fits as a "structure" or not but it is something that I seldom seen modeled. these are steam locomotive blow down drains.
