History
The 193 Industrial Water Tower is a nicely detailed and accurate rendition of a typical water tower found in the United States during the 1950s.

Because the water tower lacks animation frequently found on other Lionel accessories produced in the mid-1950s, it was not a big sales success. Locating a complete tower with a functional light will require some effort and time.

Features
Standard features on the 193 Industrial Water Tower include the following: gray plastic base, metal tower structure, black cardboard center pipe, gray water tower plus a blinking red light on top of the tower. There was always a small green house -- referred to as a hut in Lionel literature -- below the metal support structure.

Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information

Black-painted Metal Tower - The first towers produced had a black-painted metal structure. These black-metal tower versions are rare.
Red-painted Metal Tower - Shown in the photo above - After the initial run of black-painted towers, all remaining production had red-painted towers.
