FM Coal Tower on Tom Stage’s NYC Model Railroad

From Tom Stage: “I’m not sure if the NYC ever used any of these particular coaling stations on their system. However, I would be very delighted to find out if they did, and where they were located. At 4 inches tall, the Suncoast Models Coaling station does make for a nice-sized coaling station for a small-sized fueling facility. Most of the other commercially available coaling towers are at least 11 inches tall and compete too much with the overall “skyline” of a small layout like mine.”
