Arnold Water Tower (0631/6310)
A "DKS Top Ten" Retro Kit
I could not leave this one out, as it was one of the very first kits I assembled back when I was twelve or thirteen. I still use it for kitbashing: the tank can be used for many different industrial urban buildings, and the pump house makes an ideal lineside electrical shed, as seen on the Penn Central Stockton Branch.
Note that this water tower is not the type found trackside fitted with a spout to fill locomotives; it's just a water tower. Locos are filled with a separate filler supplied with water via underground pipes. But this kit didn't include one of those, so I swiped the one that came with the Faller water tower, which I'm repurposing as an industrial tank.
