The Dapol water tower brings a little fun back into the hobby. Dapol have provided a realistic series of sounds and a selection of voice over 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 and animation however bring a little audible and visual stimulation 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.
