Ah.... The weekend finally! Like the bus Jeffrey. Nice looking diseasal there Mark...
I finally had a few minutes on a couple days to spend down in the train room and managed to get the Water Tower for the Power Station almost ready to put in place. In fact all I have left to install on it is the ladder to the trap door on the roof and that can be put in place after I install it on the building. So... Here is what I have been doing:

I built the "steel" structure to hold the tank and added "rivets/bolts" at the proper places.

Checked to make sure the water tower will fit properly where it is supposed to be and measure to cut the tube housing all the piping to fit:

Finally painted, assembled, and weathered the structure:

Got a bit of time to install the Water Tower on the roof of the Power House last night. It sits directly above the Boilers on the second floor of the building. A few more shots for you folks:

Looks like people had a good week! Love the bus, Dr.-1st one I've seen after being in this hobby since about 1975. Good job!
