    Default Diesel Refueling racks?

    Does anyone still make the diesel sand and refueling racks? If so, Id love to purchase one for my yard. I model modern diesel power, so anything from the 80s to now would work for me!

    (The voices I hear in my head may not be real, but sometimes they come up with a good idea.)

    Have fun.

    Oh yeah, I had the sanding towers in my sights. I saw an old RMC from 07 or 08 that had trackside structures with old rolling stock. One was a sanding tower made of a closed hopper on the GTW? line. I thought that was interesting. I may make one large, one small yard on my layout and do both types of sand/refuel areas. small one being free standing refuel tanks and sand and the other with the racks and whole shabang!

    American Limited make some really cool double track sanding towers at less than $10 a pair.
    Here's a pic of two of mine that I've painted + weathered


    They also have just released some Snyder Fuel cranes that I've kitbashed to represent a D&RGW style crane

    I followed Moose's link and got the Diesel Sand Tower Fuel & Water Column Kit it's the all three on a base that fits right along side the track. As well as a Diesel Oil Storage Tank for 4 different areas on my layout. 2 in the yard area and a single one a piece for the passenger sidings. While I was there shopping online I also picked up the Pump House Kit 4-Brush Car Washer Kit for my yard maintenance area.
