Brass Water Column

Lambert Brass Water Column

These were imported by Kemtron, Lambert, NJI and probably others. This one is a nice one from Lambert, in the original box. I have cleaned it up by removing excess solder and adding a new counterweight thread.

Used to fill tenders with water from a separate tank located away from the track, they were quite common on large and small railroads. Great when you don't have the space for water tank in your engine facilities.

Brass Ladders and stairs

Brass Stairs and Ladder

The stairs are probably from Overland, and the ladder from Railworks. The ladder and 4 long stair sections are a little more then 5" long, and the two short stairs are a little under 2" long.

What do you think you could use these high quality HO brass parts for ?
