Title: Modern Switch Tower 45973
Post by: traindaddy2 on October 29, 2011, 02:47:14 PM
Hi!   If this was covered in a previous post, please bear with me.

I've used Plasticville for over 50 years, first in HO, now in O.  99+% of the items I have are dated.   The other day, I purchased a modern switch tower, 45973, that I thought I could work into my layout.

I was wondering if anyone has shared my impressions of this item:
        Much thiner material than my older Plasticville.
        Ladder wider and flimsier than those on the water or coaling towers.
        Door does not open.
                (Outline is part of wall & same color. Doesn't really show up)
        Overall:  "It will do"....for now!

As always, thanks for your opinions.
