413 Water Crane and Fire Devil

413 Water Crane and Fire Devil

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Stations often had these Water Cranes at the end of the platforms so the locomotives could be refilled without detaching them from the train.

Also included is a coke brazier, called a 'fire devil' to keep the cast iron pipe from freezing up during the winter.

These cranes were usually supplied by a large water tank (see Ratio 506 and 551 and Wills SS34 kits).

Supplied with pre-coloured parts although painting and/or weathering can add realism; glue is required to complete this model.
