Dapol 4A-002-005 GWR Water Tower

Dapol 4A-002-005 GWR Water Tower (Flat Top) Chocolate/Cream With Sound Effects

The Dapol water tower brings a little fun back into the hobby. Dapol have provided a realistic series of sounds and a selection of voiceover comments, several of which involve the driver berating his fireman for mucking it all up.

The highly detailed exterior of the model will not look out of place on any discerning modellers layout, with a non-motorised version available for the traditional modeller. The sound effects however bring a little audible to a locomotive servicing area that will entertain adults and children alike. The sound effects can be turned off for those times when you just want to relax and run some trains around your layout in peace and quiet.

This model features a flexible delivery pipe (can be trimmed to suit your preference), etched parts, water valve and positioning chains, drain grill, tether post and a frost prevention heater. The supported sound effects are normal fill or overflow (single or double switch operation) and some random speech comments. It requires a 12v DC/AC or DCC operation. It can be operated via a remote switch or via an optional relay pcb for dcc control. There are optional power and switch extension cables and the fill pipe rotates 90° with sound effects.

During fill (if overflow), the comments made are:

  • There’s waters spilling all over the place
  • Quick mate! - let go of that chain!
  • Blimey it’s overflowing. look out!
  • Blooming trainees. too slow. too slow!
  • I should have worn me blessed wellies!
  • I said for you to keep an eye on it

Once filling has been completed, the comments are:

  • Right we’re ready to go
  • Ready mate, she’s full!
  • That’ll see us over the top!
  • Grab the token, we’re off!
