ACE Trains announce new tinplate O gauge water tower

089b0990-80da-4e61-ac56-ec35fa1f5f42

ACE Trains has announced the latest addition to its line side range, a tinplate O gauge water tower. It is based on Carette’s iconic, and extremely rare, building issued a century ago. By combining elements of the gauge 1 version with the O gauge version (which lacked a back wall or swivelling filler tube arm) and adding working lights, this item will surely become a classic collectable in its own time. It is fitted with two 24V lamps. Priced £149 plus postage.
