Built mid or late 1970s

This scratchbuilt offset watertank makes a perfect component of a railrod yard on a small railroad or branchline of a larger one. This water tank, which appears in the gaudy colors of the Albion, Pawtuxet, & Gallilee -- my mythical 1880s Rhode Island railroad, was the subject of my seven-page how-to-do-it photo-article in the January 1976 Railroad Modeler. (It was also featured in the 1980 Walther's HO Railroad Catalogue.) [GPL]
