Gateman's Towers Kept Motorists Safe At Busy Crossings

Grade crossings are some of the most common scenes on layouts, so this tower is ideal for your steam- or diesel-era grade crossings. The Gateman's Tower is based on Milwaukee Road steam-era structures that lasted well into the 1970s. These eight-sided towers housed employees who watched for oncoming trains and manually operated pneumatic crossing gates and bells at busy street crossings. The structure includes a tool shed and storage bin, and each kit has parts for two complete sets of structures. Similar towers were used on several other railroads, so it will look at home on any layout.

Tower: 5/8" Diameter

Tool Shed: W 11/16" x D 7/16"

Coal Box: W 5/16" x D 1/4"
