|The North Dorset tool house is seen being used on the WRD as the Middlesex Center tool and train order office.|
The tool house is 26' by 16' with a height of 12' and 17' at the peak. The tool house door is 8' by8' and is 4' in from the corner. There is a window centered at both ends. The trim looks dark so I assume the structure was once painted. The roofing is roll tar-paper in a dark colour. There is a brick chimney on the far side on the roof peak.
|On the WRD the Rutland style train order signal is active and the blades are installed at Middlesex Center. This scene looks different at the moment while the tool house gets refurbishing.|
North Dorset - Water Tank
Next to the station there was a covered water tank similar to those found in Maine. The interior water tank was 10' high by 16' in width inside a 20'9" by 20'9" building 20' high on the sides which has a peaked top. It sat on a 3' high concrete base. The notes record there are windows also and I would presume a door. This tank structure is noted as being novelty siding and painted. Most of the water tanks on the Rutland Ry.never saw any paint...might make a neat model...George Dutka
