Tayshetsky District, Russian Federation

I’ve been noticing these round brick towers with a wooden section on the top. About 50 metres tall and about eight in diameter. They’re located invariably next to the rail line, sometimes at a station and sometimes at some signal box. They also tend to have mobile phone transceivers on them as well. I don’t know what they’re for but their older style architecture would suggest maybe a security control purpose in the past. I’ll have to find out. PS: the provodnitsa reckons they’re water towers. This would explain some of them but not all.
