As larger engines entered service, many railroads found their older coaling
towers couldn't handle the increased demand. By the 1920s, railroads began
contracting with outside firms to build new coaling towers. Concrete was the
material of choice as it was easy to use, affordable, fireproof and
weatherproof.


Based on an Ogle design, the Modern Coaling Tower will be a focal point in any
engine terminal. And towers like this were also built on the mainline to refuel
engines on the road. The model features realistic "concrete" walls plus detailed
chutes and mechanisms. Like the prototype, it can serve three tracks at once,
making it an ideal choice for maximizing service in minimum space. The same
sturdy construction that made these towers appealing to railroads also made them
hard to get rid of. With its metal parts removed for scrap, the tower could
still be standing in a contemporary scene, a reminder of how things used to be.
