Water towers are omnipresent on all lines in France, in different variants and volumes.
For small stations they are 100 m3, or even smaller. The main lines receive 200 m3.
The model we are presenting to you was made from the original (which is a 200 m3) on the Marseille - Ventimiglia line, in Hyères La Pauline station, still visible today.
This type of structure was used to supply the station with water, as well as the hydraulic cranes that supplied water to the boilers of the steam locomotives.
The kit contains:
A synthetic stone moulded ashlar base, a resin tank, and a brass photocutting board for accessories.
