Elevated Gate Tower Kit

This attractive and authentic structure is equally at home on a turn-of-the century pike or on an up-to-the-minute railroad. Manned towers are still employed at many crossings where rail movements are frequent; in areas such as a grade crossing near a yard, or engine terminal. Ages 7 and over.

"Elevated Gate Tower Kit"
butchmast (Reading, PA)
Nice little inexpensive kit. I'm actually using it as a fire lookout in a forest setting and I think it looks fantastic.

"Lots of charm, not much work"
This is a very nice kit that adds a lot of interest in a small space without too much work and very little expense. Add a light and a figure for additional interest. You can mount LEDs under the roof overhang for some 'security lighting' if you like - that looks great at night.

"Great kit."
Fred (Maywood, IL)
I took it out of the box. Followed the instructions to the letter and it looks great. I painted the coal shovel and that was all.

"Gate tower"
Hard for me to put together. Pieces are small to handle because I am just starting out I only have basic tools.
