Interlocking towers were in use where two railways crossed or interchanged with each other. As a result there was really no basic design that was common to an individual railway as the towers were most often a result of co-operation of each participating railway. In Canada most interlocking towers were basically common to both the CN and CP and there was little or no difference from one location to the next. The only thing differing was the size and this was dependent on the number of "levers" in the towers - the levers being the manual devices that controlled the track switches, signals, and sometimes crossing  gates or smash  arms.  Our prototype stood at North Edmonton, Alberta, controlling traffic entering the Canadian National station. It was similar in size to towers that had up to 24 levers but although information about the number of levers in this tower is sketchy it is doubtful that it had as many as 24. It  features laser-cut walls and platform, accurate specially cast windows and doors,  Campbell shingles on the roof an open stairway to the top floor with open railings and a back door landing. A jig is included to make the stair construction easy and fast. Gutters and downspouts are included. The footprint is 4.25" x 2.25".
