The two photos appearing in this blog gives you a good look at what the Central Vermont water columns looked like in the 1950's. Located in the CV yard just north of the coaling tower these water columns have a little variation in their appearance. The column between the rails does not appear to have the same flexibility as the other and resembles an older style oil filler spout. I don't have any other details regarding these spouts other than the photos. To construct a model, one spout is a good match for the Tichy water column kit, but if one was to build the other spout a little kit bashing would be required.
Next post we will take a look at the White River Junction yard office signs found on the B&M and CV...George Dutka
