Water trough set comprising sections of trough to construct a total length of 760mm (30in) of trough in your track and two lineside warning boards with lamps and servicing ladders.
The trough can easily be built to a shorter length, or extended by the addition of a second kit. The trough parts have been designed to allow clearance for tension-lock coupler arms. A water storage tank would normally be sited near to the troughs to maintain a supply of water, eg. Ratio water tower kit 506.
Water troughs were installed on many British mainlines to allow steam locomotives to refill their water tanks without needing to stop. A scoop was lowered from the locomotive or tender while running at speed, generating sufficient force to lift the water from the trough to the top of the tank or tender.
