Our theme for the second half of August is directed at the care and feeding of steam power - water towers or stands, coaling stations, and ash pits.

Either model or prototype photos are welcome.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

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

Tom, I like that model of a steel coaling tower. They are not seen as often on layouts as are the concrete or wooden towers.

Hey Bruce and Crew,

I'll start off my contributions for this part of the Late August Gallery with a couple of coal chutes from the Central of Georgia Railway. First, a coal chute at Wadley, Ga. which at the time was the longest coal chute in the South. I'd need a ton more space just to model half of the thing.



Next, from the Georgia Historical Society's photo archives, a really unique coal chute with its own set of rails. The location and date are unknown, but wouldn't this make a really, REALLY unique model? Hmmm. Perhaps Mr. Sellios . . .



Hope y'all enjoy!

Steve Flanigan

Bruce,

Is that coal tower a kit or scratch built?

Bernd,

I'm not really sure. At one time Overland had a similar model out in brass. I'll see if I can contact Bruce Brintnall.

Not necessary to contact Bruce. Just curious. Yes there was one made in brass. I recall that.
