Stockton Tower
Author: trainman502

Does anyone know where I can find a set of drawings for the Stockton Tower?
as I am keen on modelling it. Thanks for any help.

Of course you could model the modern era. A 'Dozer and a pile of sticks is all it would take! ;-(

No, you're thinking of Redondo (in the not too distant future), ST was concrete so all you need current;y is a concrete foundation.

In case you haven't seen these yet, here is a series of shots of the tower's destruction. The last one, in particular, gives a good view of the detail under the roof overhang... helpful for modeling.

Yeah... I laughed at that one too. For others unaware, it's called an excavator (with a breaker attachment instead of a bucket).

Yuu folks were a lot of help to this guy! I did go to the model train index but didn't find anything. It would seem the model press would have had something on this tower/location at one time or another.

will not give up though.

Not so much as you'd think, the western board would've been the only place I thought of. In terms of modeling only the location made it interesting, beyond that it was a fairly unpretty box.

That picture and map are part of my website: http://cencalrails.railfan.net There are 3 pages on my site, the demolition, the tower itself, and interior shots.
