Barberton Coaling Facility
Posted: Sat Mar 08, 2014 8:34 pm
For anybody interested in modeling A&BB's compact little Barberton engine terminal in steam days (up to about 1954), the April Model Railroader has a very nice article on building and upgrading the Walthers plastic Fairbanks Morse coaling tower. This structure is almost a dead ringer for the Barberton facility. Another route to the same goal is to use the Alexander Scale Models wood kit, which is based on a NYC Fairbanks Morse installation. The two kits seem to be based on the same prototype.

If you live in Akron and model in HO scale, Hilltop Hobby Shop has a few of these life-like/walthers kits in stock and priced below list. Mine is coming along nicely.
