Am I imagining things, or did Walthers Cornerstone kits in O scale make a Milwaukee Road Octagonal crossing tower? I know they did in HO, but I was wondering if they had made one in O scale? I would really like to find one in O scale if it was produced. I'll attach a picture of one in HO scale.
Never saw one produced. Probably would have been a good seller.
At Trainfest, the Milwaukee Road Historical Society was selling a kit for that tower, but I didn't notice what scale it was. Most likely HO, but who knows - you might get lucky. Might be worth contacting them.
Thanks for the replies. I hope they did produced in O scale, but it looks like I am out of luck. Only stuff I have found was in HO.
On its website, Walthers doesn’t list any O scale building kits in its Cornerstone line. It’s 90 percent HO and the rest N scale.
I just double checked website to make sure.
OK thanks, I guess it was never made in O scale. Too bad. ATLAS should bring it out, since they took all of Walthers O scale stuff.
What about it ATLAS?
There is one on ebay right now. Made of brass. Manufacture is Weaver.
Mark: Apparently you must mean the elevated shanty from Weaver. I do not seem to find a Milwaukee Road octagonal model like in my picture. If I am wrong please let me know. jeff
Hey Jeff. My apologies. I miss read your post. I was thinking of an enclosed octagon water tank. Not the crossing tower. There is an enclosed octagon water tank made by Weaver on ebay. I think it's listed on the page after the elevated gate and interlocking tower. I apologize for the misinformation.
Atlas O acquired The Cornerstone kits, so make a suggestion on the ATLAS model railroad website. Click on INFORMATION to find the Contact Us page.
