A new water tower for the layout>

On the layout there are two water towers, the first is a smaller one that provides water to the station and the small goods yard, while the second is bigger and is for the larger goods yard and the engine shed. Both the placement of the smaller tower and its appearance has been irritating me as it hadn't been moved since I did a major upgrade of the station etc. last year.

So the other day I removed it from its former location and scrapped most of it retaining only the tank itself while I built a new pedestal and piping etc. So here it is, the first pic is of it unpainted and the second is of it installed. The pedestal is Wills stone sheet, the ladder is Plastruct, the piping is from Walthers and the rest plus the tank is Evergreen.
